The one dependable thing about director JC Calciano’s LGBT comedies is that he never requires you to think much.. He never tries to over-complicate them so within the first 10 minutes you know the entire plot. He will never ever deviate from it, unless he can add a scenario that he can mine another cheap joke out of. ‘Think ’10 Year Plan’ or ‘eCupid‘!
This latest ‘boy-lite’ movie is like an episode of his successful web series that has simply been stretched out into a 90 minute feature. It’s the story of an aging cosmetic queen Sally Fay (Traci Lords camping it up to the nines) who wants to find the ‘Fountain of Youth.’
She discovers it is an a California Gym where very few people seem to actually work out and simply hang out in the steam room al day.. Which, surprise surprise, she believes (like so many gay man have for decades before) that this will keep you young forever.
Her dastardly plan is to get hold of the gm which has a financial crisis =, but she first has to overcome the opposition of a group of pretty washboard stomachs who are half naked for most of the movie, and possess about one brain cell between them.
She sends in Neil (Eric D’Agostino) her sweet handsome gay assistant to work undercover and to devise a plan, but naturally faced with so much naked flesh he soon has plans of his own.
The Steam Room Stories is as hammy as hell with more than its share of limp dick jokes , but if seeing cute young men wearing nothing more than skimpy towels with jokes even thinner is your thing, then no doubt you’ll love it. But trust us, the search for eternal youth, is really no laughing matter.
