    Along with the sidebuster thread, I came across this website some time ago.

    http://www.topgunisgay.freehomepage.com/

    I must admit since reading this site it has turned top gun into one of my favourite all time films as it makes me laugh all the way through with it's blatant homo-erotic undertones.

    Anyone else subscribe to this theory? Or does a volleyball game between 4 young men stripped to the chest and oiled down really have a place in a rough n ready airplane action film!

    Sinzer, you could be right, especially when one considers that Kelly McGillis looks like a bloke. Mind you, Val Kilmer can do no wrong.

    A truly cheese-laden film, very quotable though.

    If Tom Cruise (a gay porn star name if ever I've heard one) is the (brown) star of a film then of course it's gay.
    Who'd think otherwise? Not me, that's for sure.

    I think you could analyse most films using the same logic as on that site :rolleyes:

    Top Gun is NOT gay, but all the characters do look gay what with changing fashions :D

    Still a top movie though!

    Q. Is Top Gun gay?

    A. Tom Cruise is in it.

    Did you really need more of a clue?

    'That it, and he, are NOT gay under any circumstances.'

    Is what I had intended to suggest.

    Top Gun's so gay you can only find it skulking around in public toilets or backstage at panto.


    Not that that's Tom's fault though. Big hunk of manly woman-loving maleness that he is.

    I remember Quentin Tarantino explaining this theory in a movie, it was very funny - does anyone know what that film is?

    Thanks

    Whether you think it's a bent film or not that site's is a load of ********........

    Taken in context of the film what's gay about any of the "General Gayness" lines?!?!?

    Top Gun's a great action film, leave it alone or I'll hit you with my handbag you nasty boyz.......:D

    [post edited by moderator for swearing, please dont use numbers to avoid the swearing filter, use asterix to completly cover the word, thanks.]

    I think what's happened is that a gay, or bunch of gays, who fancy Tom Cruise, have had to justify their liking of what they would otherwise consider is an overly and overtly militaristic movie, by pretending it's a film about another bunch of gays.

    Same sort of thing goes for Butch Cassidy....., gays fancy the leading man/men so justify their liking for a non-gay film by pretending it is gay.

    Weirdoes

    Pretty sure it was 'Pulp Fiction' in which Quentin, now there's a gay name, Tarantino expounded the theory.

    I've just got back from Amsterdam and can state with total certainty that TopGun is most definitely gay. Just dont ask me for the connection!?!



















    Was a fav of mine for a very long time but haven't seen it in years now.
    But now the ******** yanks are trying to start a world war to save their economy and keep control over another country I'll avoid watching matcho rubbish like that. And anyway our forces would knock spots off those over inflated ego American forces......Yeah!!!


    **** where did that come from.....!?!£*!

    Cocktail (from the title, that has to be a gay movie :D) was always total pants I thought. It's only redeeming feature was Elizabeth Shue displaying her love sacks in the jacuzzi :devil:

    Top Gun is a classic however. Can't believe Tim Robbins was so young in it.

    Each to their own though :)
