Review - "Filmed during Palm Springs’ pride parade, Laughing Matters…The Men is another in the continuing series of documentaries about funny, out queer comedians. This riotous film features a half-dozen guys from the well known Bruce Vilanch and Bob Smith, to the should-be-better-known Alec Mapa, Scott Kennedy, Andre Kelley and Eddie Sarfaty. Each comic gets his stand up time and talk about growing up, coming out, and being in show business, as well as topics as diverse as gay marriage and even AIDS. Throughout their interspersed monologues and stand up routines, they zing some hilarious one-liners. Alec Mapa’s wedding present is achingly funny, as is Bruce Vilanch’s jokes about Cher. Yet there is a poignancy with each man being comfortable with his sexuality and not conforming to other people’s responses—such as Bob Smith, one of the “Funny Gay Males” being asked to tone down the gay part of his act, or Scott Kennedy revealing to a straight crowd, late in his act, that he’s got designs on a hunk in the audience. Chock-filled with chuckles, this is a satisfying tribute to the gay men who make us laugh at—and with—ourselves."
