It's the same old story. Eric Thomas is looking for a boyfriend, but his dreamy roommate Mark Andrews wants in Eric's pants. Instead, Eric goes off to seduce a straight bartender, Chance Caldwell, never realizing what he had right beneath his nose (so to speak). Thick Flesh (Beneath the Jeans) is a nicely scripted story with some decent performances that is marred by some extremely sloppy production quality.
The soundtrack has a constant buzz-saw like hum and the clicking of a still camera in the background which is very distracting (at least there's no flashing going on.) It doesn't make any sense to have a fab cast that includes Tyler Scott and Coy Dekker and set up a good story line but then throw in a sex scene that has nothing to do with anything else. Then, there's some obvious silliness like when Tyler goes to the pool while his buddies have sex and then he comes back talking about his great swim and he's totally dry, not even his hair is wet. Yes, the flesh is thick, but so is the production.
