D Train, TheBy Paramount Pictures
Dan Landsman (Jack Black), a married, seemingly hetero family man with a nerdy past, is heading up his high school reunion committee and having trouble attracting a crowd. He travels to Los Angeles to track down Oliver Lawless (James Marsden), the most popular guy from his graduating class, and convince him to go to the reunion. One he and Oliver meet up, the two get a whole lot more intimate than Dan had expected and he finds himself confronting much bigger issues than the reunion.
Reasons to Buy
- All of the official marketing materials for The D Train try to hide the fact that the movie revolves around a gay tryst (it's pretty insulting, actually), but it's easy to figure out if you read between the lines.
- Produced by Mike White, this movie has a lot in common with his controversial indie breakthrough Chuck & Buck.
- Though it completely bombed at the box office and the studio seems ashamed of it, you have to give Jack Black, James Marsden and the creators credit for trying to push a tricky gay-themed flick into the mainstream.
