Comprised of compiled footage from over 60 years of British cinema, this playful documentary from Andrea Weiss brims with cliches and stereotypes associated with homosexuality. Each segment is introduced via a narrator who briefly points out certain rules for the portrayal of gays in British films, i.e.: "Your purpose in life is to disrupt the heterosexual plot." The rule is then illustrated with a series of unidentified clips; sometimes the scenes of one film are interspliced into a scene in funny or ironic ways. Weiss also employs lightning-fast cross-cutting to similar effect.
