Movie Info

Ray Yeung's comedy Cut Sleeve Boys tells the story of two Chinese/British gay men named Mel and Ash. The two middle-aged friends attend the funeral of a former acquaintance named Gavin, and begin to question where they are in their own lives as a result. Mel starts to wonder how much longer he can maintain his endless string of plastic surgeries to maintain his looks. Ash decides to try life as a transvestite in order to find a man who will stay with him. Soon a secret from Gavin's past complicates matters for the two protagonists.

Critic Reviews for Cut Sleeve Boys

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

The performances are fairly static, but Lim and Leow are charming enough to hold our attention.

Aug 31, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Despite original touches, Cut Sleeve Boys is mostly a mediocre gay-themed movie plagued by tired humor and slapdash filmmaking.

Aug 16, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Things tend to sputter about, feeling disconnected and episodic.

[Director] Yeung handles [his characters'] parallel journeys of self-discovery with humor, grace and an occasionally heavy hand, with Leow giving a winning performance as Ash.

Terrible soap opera that not even the most ardent admirers of the most high-camp aspects of gay culture will find anything to their liking.
