Netflix just scored a royal touchdown with the recent addition of Down Low, an LGBTQ+ comedy that's as entertaining as a Super Bowl halftime show!

Directed by the brilliant Rightor Doyle, this raunchy 2023 film follows the hilarious escapades of Gary, a freshly out-of-the-closet middle-aged man, and Cameron, a sex-positive masseur hired by Gary for a happy ending. But when Cameron learns just how inexperienced Gary is at gay life, he makes it his mission to introduce Gary to the wild world of Grindr, leading to some unexpected and side-splitting chaos. The official synopsis, as per IMDb, reads:

"A deeply repressed man, the uninhibited young man that gives him a happy ending, and all the lives they ruin along the way."
