Boy Culture is an undemanding but sufficiently engaging serving of smut and sentiment. As such, it reclaims territory that queer cinema has largely ceded to TV shows like Queer as Folk, The L Word and Six Feet Under.

Audience Reviews for Boy Culture

A poor attempt to make a hustler seem likable. When a character is this cocky... I do not care if he has a soft emotional side.

It's different and not for everybody, but I thought it had a good storyline. Plus, the adorable boys that make up the cast are nice eye-candy.

A male prostitutes narrates his life of complicated relationships. None of the characters were likable nor did the plot interest me, it is essentially a low budget soft core porn.
