Online Special: A great gay romantic comedy, Trick is a real treat and one of the best in its genre. Trick sees Gabriel, a repressed New Yorker, meeting a sensual go-go dancer by the name of Mark, and follows their night together as they unsuccessfully attempt to hook-up. Witty and heart-warming, this romantic comedy has a subtle but powerful through-line, and features a brilliant comedic performance by actress Tory Spelling.
Starring: Christian Campbell, John Paul Pitoc,Tori Spelling
