When taking a class at the local junior college becomes reality and the bullets are real it’s time to run for cover!
That’s what Danny (Marc Samuel, perhaps best known as Felix DuBois on Days of Our Lives, plus Model Minority) is faced with in writer/director Doug Spearman’s crime spree comedy, Hot Guys With Guns. It is heading to DVD from Wolfe on May 6.
The film has been working the festival circuit and a limited theatrical break is planned for early April to help raise awareness.
Danny is an actor who wants to land a career-making part on a TV real-life crime show, so he figures that a session of night classes for would-be private eyes is the perfect way to learn the jargon, procedures and the ins and outs of being a professional PI. His instructor is none other than Jimmy Peppicelli (Alan Blumenfeld), a grizzled veteran of the peeper business and he spots in Danny all the talent necessary to become a real pro.
One of the “homework” assignments that he assigns his star pupil is to shadow someone … Danny selects his old flame Patrick (Bryan McArdle), a pretty boy with a penchant for the party scene — his friends call him Pip. In no time the assignment turns into the real deal when Pip reveals that he has been the victim of the “sex party bandits.”
This is a crew that is working the high profile gay party scene with a series of well-planned home invasion robberies. The victims are keeping the police out it, for all sorts of reasons, and so it falls to Danny and Pip, with the help of Jimmy (who is not all that into the gay scene) to follow the clues and solve the mystery.
Hot Guys With Guns a fun outing and the finished product (technical aspects are all solid) belies the film’s budget … Bonus features include a blooper reel.
