C. Jay Cox's charming movie about a gay
couple who are reunited as one is about to marry a woman is set to
premiere on cable channel here! The romantic comedy will make its
network debut on Friday, June 6th. Here's what we wrote
about Kiss The Bride when it opened in limited release.
Gay audiences cheered when Tori
Spelling's character of Katherine, a struggling off-off-off Broadway
actress, gave her sweet, if clumsy, musical audition in Trick.
Her piano accompaniment for that audition played by best friend
Gabriel who turns a trick with a male stripper into real love.
Since then Spelling has become
something of a gay icon. A status she clearly enjoys.
“I'm a huge fan of gays,” Spelling
recently told Reuters news service. “They love me; I love them.
They consider me kind of a gay icon, which they've labeled me as.”
In her role as bride in the new
romantic comedy Kiss The Bride, Spelling hopes to expand on her
The movie tells the story of Alex
(Spelling) and Ryan (James O'Shea) as they approach their wedding
day. Complications arise when Matt (Phillip Karner) shows up, more
interested in breaking up the couple than wishing them well. Matt
must confront the fact that he might still be in love with Ryan. But
Alex proves to be either cunning or completely adorable as she wins
Matt over. It is My Best Friend's Wedding with a gay twist.
The movie's gay theme “was probably
one of the top things that made me want to do the movie,” she said.
The movie is directed by C. Jay Cox,
whose previous credits include the gay Mormon movie Latter Days.
Spelling is also a marriage equality
advocate. At a gay couples request, she even became an ordained
minister to officiate at their wedding.
