The Bear Essentials

If you’re looking for a movie date this weekend, and you’re in the mood for something with a gay focus to it, BearCity 2: The Proposal premieres this Friday at the Carlton Cinema, and it boasts some pretty big names and a decent pedigree backing it!

Kathy Najimy plays den mother to the returning cast of bears, boys and cubs, for a Bear Week bachelor party in Provincetown ! Take a trip down the aisle with Roger (Gerald McCullouch) and Tyler (Joe Conti) to one of the most magical beach towns on earth in this romantic comedy for all.


Kevin Smith, Dan Choi, Frank DiCaro, Mike Ruiz and Varla Jean Merman, lend their support to our lovable gang as they navigate through a foam party, ex-boyfriends and 3,000 sexy men.  

Meanwhile, Richard Riehle (Bridesmaids) as father of the groom, learns a whole new meaning to the word “Daddy!”  

BearCity 2: The Proposal, the sequel to the award-winning breakout hit BearCity (2010) is a romp full of fur, fun and family as the bears realize that marriage is much more than just the freedom to say “I do.”  

The film opens on Friday, August 31st at Carlton Cinema in Toronto and stars Gerald McCullouch ("CSI"), Joe Conti (BearCity), Stephen Guarino ("Happy Endings"), Brian Keane (Urbania), Gregory Gunter ("The Onion News Network"), James Martinez ("Breaking Bad"),  Susan Mosher (The Wedding Planner),  Jason Stuart ("Entourage"), Richard Riehle (Bridesmaids) and Kathy Najimy (Sister Act).  The film is written and directed by Doug Langway (BearCity).

Well, it’s always nice to see fully realized gay characters, rather than the neutered gay best friends or hapless gym bunnies. Plus, it’s the Carlton Cinema. Seriously, tickets are like five bucks on Tuesday. FIVE BUCKS. That’s not too shabby.
