Synopsis by Mark Deming
Gay man falls for straight man who is pretending to be gay man to win the heart of straight girl in this raunchy and offbeat romantic comedy. Attractive but bitchy college student Gwen (Emily Stiles) shares an apartment with her friend Marc (Ryan Carnes), a gay man with a hyperactive social life. Keeping track of Marc's lovers has given Gwen a taste for gay men, or at the very least men who look and act gay. Kyle (Jim Verraros), who is also gay, learns about Gwen's unique preference at a party also attended by his straight and newly single pal Caleb (Scott Lunsford), who wants to hook up with her. Kyle gets the bright idea that Caleb should pretend to be gay in order to attract Gwen's attention, but this plan seriously backfires when Marc develops a major crush on Caleb -- and Gwen decides they make a perfect couple. Eating Out marked the screen acting debut of Jim Verraros, who was a finalist on the 2002 season of American Idol.
