Nine Dead Gay Guys (9 Dead Gay Guys) (2002)
In this gangster farce from first-time writer/director Ky Mo Lab, a pair of Irish pals become embroiled in a murder mystery upon their move to London. When Kenny (Glen Mulhern) arrives in the big city, he's dismayed to find his mate, Byron (Brendan Mackey), on the dole and boozing it up. But he's even more horrified to learn how Byron supplements his dole checks: by working as a rent boy in a gay pub. Despite his trepidation, Kenny soon embarks on a parallel career. But when a rich couple named The Queen (Michael Praed) and Golders Green (Simon Godley) turn up dead, Kenny and Byron think they've found the solution to their financial woes. Rumor has it that Golders Green kept a wad of cash squirreled away in his mattress. Unfortunately, several other colorful low-lives have their eyes on the prize, from The Desperate Dwarf (Raymond Griffiths) to The Iron Lady (Karen Sharman). As the queer corpses continue to pile up, Kenny and Byron wonder whether they'll ever locate the loot -- and whether their newfound occupation has deeper implications. Screened at the Palm Springs Film Festival, Nine Dead Gay Guys marked the feature debut for both Mulhern and Mackey. The character Golders Green is named after the neighborhood where he lives, a historically Jewish area of London. … More

Critic Reviews for Nine Dead Gay Guys (9 Dead Gay Guys)
Takes place in such a cartoonish, good-natured universe it's hard to imagine anyone taking offense.
If garbage could think, it would look down on 9 Dead Gay Guys as garbage.
Nonstop racial, sexual and cultural stereotypes parade across the screen with little wit or real humor to guide them.
Witless, sophomoric and relentlessly frenetic.
Inventive dark comedy.
This movie is a little raunchy with lots of off-color humor that's bound to offend somebody. It's all done with... not exactly good taste, but in the spirit of good fun.
9DGG wants in the worst way to shock and offend the viewer. Unfortunately though, the film's really a big softy (no pun intended, of course) dressed up in the campy drag of an outrageous farce.
Not for the politically correct or the sexually squeamish, but definitely for those who enjoy a bloody good larf.
This exuberant, in-your-face farce is decidedly not for all tastes.
Walks a thin line between refreshing irreverence and shameless exploitation of offensive gay stereotypes.
Unfortunately director Mo Lab is so caught up in flashy visuals that he misses the fact that the script is badly structured and stuffed with cringe-worthy gags.
