Its not that I have a problem with gay people or the gay community at all. Some of my favorite people are gay. But to watch a movie that, I think, is about two perfectly good looking guys 'go to the other side' is more than I can bear.

No way in heck will my DH watch it. I went to the theater with 3 of my sisters. Even if I ordered it thru Netflix and we could watch it in the privacy of our own home he'd probably clear out . Oh well, I guess that's better than him wanting to watch it over and over again, right??

So Lilybelle, what did your DH think about the movie?

I haven't seen this movie yet, and don't know for sure if I will, but I have heard a lot of good about it.

I watched it with my boyfriend. We got it through Netflix. There really is nothing wrong with a man watching a movie that involves gay men--it's just like any other R-rated movie with sex scenes--it's not like they're watching gay porn

But honestly, overall, I found the movie pretty boring. I don't think the movie (mor the actors) deserved ANY award nominations, but apparently, plying the role of a homosexual is now akin to playing the role of a ******ed person (they always get nominated for awards, too, even if they don't necessarily do a fabulous job). The only reason I watched Brokeback was that it had received so much talk at the awards that I figured it might be good...but I was disappointed (not by the gay scenes, but by the whole story and just the general feel of the movie...zzzzzzz...). Oh, and I know Jeff watched it for the same reasons as me, not because he particularly cared to see the gay sex scenes

My hubby said that he liked the story line but thought the movie was
too slow and drawn out and a little boring. Personally, I liked the movie and the story line. He felt the main actors are the only reason the movie was such a hit and that it didn't deserve any special awards.

My husband saw it...I didn't....one of those movies I just haven't got around to seeing yet.....not sure why it would be so unusual for a man to watch it.....maybe I am missing something....my husband found it long and tragic...I will have to ask him again....it has been awhile since he saw it.

I thought it was a great movie; very heartbreaking... I watched it by myself, while my husband played games on the computer. He caught about the last 20 minutes or so and implied that it was good and that he should have watched it from the beginning.

I thought it was just so-so-not nearly as good as all the hype indicated.

My DH and I saw it in the theater, then bought it to have in our library at home. We thought it was a tragic love story with wonderful acting. I loved the scenery (great travelogue for that part of Canada.) We had watched "Six Feet Under" on HBO, so the risque scenes in "Brokeback Mountain" did not shock us at all (they are not explicit,like sex scenes in a hetero picture!) I thought it was a great movie, so did my DH.

My husbandand and I both thought it was beautiful, powerful and very moving. I loved that it was not overly sentimental because then the violence near the end is so much more shocking. Not that they even overplayed the violence (another bonus). I just find it heartbreaking that two people who loved each other and wanted only to settle down quietly together were forced to live a lie.

My husband and I watched this awhile ago and thought it was very good, very moving. I'm not sure it lived up to the hype, but I suppose I don't find a movie about 2 gay men such a big deal.

There is actually more female nudity in this film than there is of men. The movie itself isn't about sex, but simply two people who loved each other and couldn't be together.
