*Flawless* (R) -- a partner of *Three to Tango*

A completely homosexual movie. Little else needs to be said about the ignominy of this movie, but I will try. Note that to ensure being at the next movie in time for its start, I left this movie about ten minutes early.

A solid 85 minutes of stereotyping of the homosexual lifestyle. Homosexual mannerisms, transvestism, and all manner of the homosexual lifestyle were presented.

A straight hero city cop suffered a stroke during an attempt to rescue a victim. Many of the residents in the apartment building where he lived were homosexual. And one of the "therapists" recommended by the cop's doctor was homosexual -- the cop took singing lessons from a gay dude as therapy for regaining the use of his reduced ability to speak. And a good friendship ensued, albeit platonic (thankfully). *Flawless* showed what the producers and writers felt was the ugly side of the homosexual lifestyle as well as the "attractive" side with professional business people as homosexuals: both sides of the fence. The movie also portrayed that the homosexual is as capable of deep emotions and loyal friendship as anyone else and can be as sincere as straight people. Like that is something new and profound? Being homosexual does not make the practitioner incapable of these social skills. Such has never been the concern about homosexuality. The concern is that homosexuality is a sin [Deut. 22:5; Rom. 1:24-28; Lev. 18:22; Lev. 20:13; 1 Cor. 7:2 and many others]. While God hates sin [Prov 6:16 - 19], He DOES NOT hate the homosexual. The homosexual is as precious to Jesus as you or I and we are charged to help the sinner to end their sinful ways, even our own.

Homosexual mannerisms of all types abound in *Flawless*. Transvestism, snippet comments, and name-calling were so frequent it was most difficult to keep up with them. There were homosexual conventions, homosexual bars, and beatings by homosexual partners. Everything was immersed in a theme o homosexuality. There was also murder, drinking, prostitution, contemplated suicide,vulgar talk, and, yes, belittlement of escaping the homosexual lifestyle. But, of course, acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle was presented in a very positive "light."

So many of our visitors seem to be relying only on this Summary/Commentary for a full assessment of this movie. This is not possibble. For the best representation of the CAP Entertainment Media Analysis Model applied to this movie, visit the Findings/Scoring section below.
