The story of two lads from Belfast as they stumble their way through the London gay underworld in search of 'gainful employment'. This being the offering of sexual favors to older gay men in order to subsidize their respective giros. However, when one of the lads accidentally shags a punter to death, they are forced to look for 'work' elsewhere. It is then that they discover the myth of 'The Bread in the Bed' - a huge bed full of money. 'Nine Dead Gay Guys' is the result of the ensuing caper as the lads begin the search for the elusive bed.Written by
Golders Green (the name of one of the characters in the movie, who claims to be a very religious Jew) is actually the name of a middle class bedroom suburban type neighborhood located in the London Borough of Barnet. It was sparsely populated before 1900, but grew rapidly through most of the 20th Century, having an especially notable Jewish population, including a large contingent of Orthodox and Hasidic Jews, such as the character of Golders Green.

I rented Nine Dead Gay Guys on a whim. I thought that, judging by the title alone, it should be funny. I was right. This movie impressed me very much, the same way Clerks did when I first watched it. Like that movie, this movie gets better every time you watch it. I don't know why this movie was reviewed so poorly. Perhaps it made people uncomfortable to watch it. I will admit that the first time I watched it, I was unable to connect with the movie and characters until about 1/3 of the way through it. After I watched it for a while I found it quite enjoyable. This movie has a wonderful amount of memorable quotes to keep you interested. I pity anyone who misses out on "Golders Green's Really Hard Red Bull Test" All in all a fantastic movie that hopefully time will not forget.
