So I haven’t posted on here in forever but I just really want, nay, need to GUSH about this movie!
The Thing About Harry is a TV movie romcom on Freeform/Hulu and it’s just the best.
Have you ever wanted to watch a generic Rom-Com in the style of Julie Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Kate Hudson, et al, but gay. THIS IS THE MOVIE YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR!
Some things I love about this movie:
*Completely ignores “The Gays Must Be Traumatized” trope
*No Homophobia in the text (bullying backstory but that’s it).
*NOT hyper-sexualised without sanitising the queer experience either.
*Explicit happy ending. No downer/melancholy/sad notes at all. Just an explicitly optimistic, happy ending!
The protagonist (Sam) does become a bit mean and unsympathetic near the middle, but it’s nothing worse than what you would find in the straight rom-coms of the female leads mentioned above.
I watched it last night for the first time and had to fight the urge to rewatch it immediately 😅 But I’m def rewatching this when I get home today.
I love this form of positive representation and I need 50 more movies exactly like this right the fuck now!
Fun fact: the movie was written and directed by the actor who played Emmet Honeycutt in Queer as Folk, Peter Paige.
Did you never outgrow your Ancient Egyptian phase? Do you like to talk about gender ambiguity in mythology and the concept of third gender? Do you like the idea of two men being buried and living out their afterlife together in wedded bliss? Then this is the episode for you!
