| What happened???
.. to this movie, Director Tom Donaghy, and lead actor Jeremy Hollingworth? This movie appears to be the last thing they made, and this was 1999. And what happened to the U.S. distribution? It appears to be have been shown in the U.S. at only a few film festivals and then it went straight to video in Europe. I saw the movie recorded from German TV, with German audio dubbed over the original English audio, thankfully with English subtitles so I could understand it. It's an enjoyable film with a handsome, likable lead actor. I can see where the movie would be controversial. It's a little Portnoy's Complaint - Pauly seems to get arousals at the oddest times and places, and needs to . . . bring himself to self-climax frequently to relieve the stress. And the concept of alter boys sexual attracted to one another would not be well received by some. But, I thought America was supposed to be a free society? Anyway, the Story of a Bad Boy is an enjoyable little film. Catch it however you can, even dubbed over in a foreign language.
