It's not the worst movie ever made. It's also not original in the slightest bit. I picked up all the "homages" and inspiration from other films fairly quickly without knowing a thing. I chuckled a few times but I don't see myself watching this ever again. Totally predictable and cliched with a running time about 40 minutes too long.

Set in the iconic Pines, Andrew Ahn's FIRE ISLAND is an unapologetic, modern day rom-com showcasing a diverse, multicultural examination of queerness and romance. Inspired by the timeless pursuits from Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice, the story centers around two best friends (Joel Kim Booster and Bowen Yang) who set out to have a legendary summer adventure with the help of cheap rosé and their cadre of eclectic friends.

Runs on too long.
Lotsa drugs, booze and screamers, but not too many laughs
I don't think this film does any favors to the gay community especially on a streaming service available to view by so many for so many reasons and some of those will be for the wrong reasons. Laughing with gay people is not the same as laughing at them. This is only a depiction of a small, select section of gay men and the ancient stereotypes on constant display will only add fuel to the fire of haters, though I suppose those who hate will do so no matter what they see. Still, it is not an accurate depiction of the average gay man and I think that is damaging. As a rom-com, I suppose it's decent enough, but I'm not the one to judge that accurately as they are not my kind of film. There are a few funny lines, but many more wince worthy moments. I suppose if you don't find these types offensive, it's all pleasant enough in a silly way and some of the music is enjoyable. Booster is pretty much the star of this and is the best thing in it, but since he also wrote this, that is a half-hearted compliment. This is what he wants the world to think about gay men?!
As a gay I hated this film
I hated hated hated this film. Every gay stereotype times 100 in this film. Finally they make a gay film and then they make it awful. The characters where so unlikeable I hated every one in the film. As a gay man I hated this film even more because it's such stereotypes gay people oh gay people do drugs oh gay people hate relationship oh gay people get drunk it's just awful. Even the characters or stereotypes oh the hot gay one is the one who turns out to be the jerk but the rest are not. It just drive me nuts. Margaret Cho is the only good thing about this show. Oh and the end is so bad it's like why did I waste 2 hours on this and did anything really happen in the 2 hours. Skip this movie trust me your saving yourself.
well it was good, i expected it to be a classic 'two friends try find the one but realise it was their friend all along' but nope, surprised me, classic stereotypes of course which you just have to ignore..
It's a fun movie, I kinda enjoyed it... Sure it was predictable but, most romcoms are today, so ;)
Is this the sequel or prequel to Ram Ranch?
It's the same formula as every romantic comedy ever...but with two dudes. It's clichéd as everything recent, and thus so boring that I didn't even bother finishing it because the ending was that obvious. Nothing against alternate lifestyles etc. etc, but I remember when creativity was a requirement, Like with the birdcage
good movie, great film.. (is that comment movie related?) well the scared straighties will be here soon to needlessly bash on it, to make themselves feel like a real mans
Good movie. This movie is to celebrate the Anual Gay Pride Day
