Can a multi-million dollar film heiress turn a gay man straight? Well, Kiss the Bride is a feature film which stars the legendary and flamboyant Tori Spelling.

Think wedding, two confused men, a voluptuous siren and you have all the elements that make up this romantic comedy.

It has been shown at various international screenings including the 2008 Mardi Gras film festival.

The movie was released on DVD last Thursday and has already made an impact on the sales market. This gay-themed production is all about how our first love can come back and haunt us.

If you have ever fallen in love beware because it’s not only going to make you laugh, its going to hit the heartstrings as well.

Director C.J. Cox said that the gay community would relate to the storyline.

When we first screened the movie at the Out Fest Screen Festival in the US we had such a great reaction from the lesbian community, he said.

During the filming Tori was several months pregnant so the lesbian audience couldn’t get over the fact that her boobs were enormous. There are scenes that we see when the boys first connect and kiss, which will appeal to everyone.

The movie is based around the character Matt who receives an invitation to his former school mate Ryan’s wedding. Ryan also happens to be Matt’s first lover and first love.

But when Matt realises Ryan is marrying a woman, he decides to head home to make sure his mate is doing the right thing and not trying to hide is sexuality behind the veil of marriage.

What follows is a delightful tale tackling the trials and tribulations of moving on with one’s life and also going on that personal journey to find self-acceptance.

As in everyday life there’s always that special lover who is unforgettable and one who is destined to be our soul mate. As for Matt, his struggle to find love has been complicated with nobody able to measure up to Ryan.

It’s sort of a conventional romantic comedy with a big twist, Cox said.

The film also talks about all the notions of labels and in our willingness to label ourselves and label others -“ do we speak up or overlook what is perhaps the bigger truth?
It’s a situation that anyone can relate to when facing a crucial life-changing moment and the idea what if that first love came back into the picture.

There’s also a lot of laughter and at the same time I feel that storyline will keep you guessing till the very end.
