THE CATCHER WAS A SPY Discussion
#1




It's fine. It's pleasant. Rudd is quite good, and points for having a character that is clearly bisexual (though only hinted at). 

It probably should have been a miniseries, as it feels too short at 90 minutes and they do a lot of stuff where they're jumping back and forth through time and truncating the narrative.

Paul Rudd looks old for the first time in ever.

This sounds like a movie Troy McClure would star in.

I look forward to the thrilling final instalment in the trilogy, The Catcher Says Goodbye.

How is something that is only hinted at clear?

They don't show him having sex with or kissing a man, but they make it clear he's attracted to men. There's a sequence where he wakes up after clearly spending the night with a man, and a sequence of him leaving a gay bar. But you also see him having enthusiastic sex with his girlfriend at the time. Lots of talk about how he doesn't quite fit anywhere, etc.

So....not really hinting then? Tongue

Apparently the real life Berg's sexuality is still a mystery, so the movie doesn't outright say "I fuck both guys and girls." I'd say it suggests it more than hints it.
