Trick (1999): Movie Review
Trick (1999): A quintessential film for a generation of gay men, 1999’s Trick took a lighthearted look at the pleasures and pitfalls of one-night stands as Gabriel (Christian Campbell) and Mark (John Paul Pitoc) discover that hooking up in Manhattan isn’t as easy as it looks and romance can blossom at the most unexpected times.
Gabriel, an aspiring Broadway musical writer, meets Mark, a muscled stripper, who picks him up on the subway. They spend the night trying to find somewhere to be alone, but are forced to contend with Gabriel’s selfish roommate, his irritating best friend, and a vicious, jealous drag queen in a gay dance club. When the sun finally rises, it does so on a promising new relationship. Starring Christian Campbell (“Refer Madness: The Movie Musical”), John Paul Pitoc (“Thank You, Good Night”) and Tori Spelling (“The House of Yes,” TV’s “Beverly Hills 90210”).
