In short, its a gay pedophile fantasy film, the rest is just window dressing.
The film's advertisements make this the most dishonest movie ever. Its like advertising "Triumph of the Will" as a movie about a band camp. If I could put a minus five star, I would. This has to be one of the most dishonest film ever.
I found it exceptionally disturbing that practically no reviewer mentioned the gay pedophile aspect of this movie. Its like the sycophants went to watch Jaws and reviewed it as a comedy of three gay men in a boat, the end; no mention of the ten ton man-eating shark. Or they reviewed Triumph of the Will and reviewed it as an uber band camp.
This film sadly shows the level of influence the gay lobby groups have over the film industry. If the fat teacher was feeling up female students' genitalia, or if the new teacher had a serious discussion with a female student about oral sex, the outrage from the movie industry and other lobby groups would have squashed the film - and the director, script writers, producers, editors and actors would have had their careers ruined. But because its a gay film, the reviewers and movie industry reckon its "a beautiful film about school life and philosophy (my arse)", and the fat turd of a teacher is "a flawed hero"!!!
Its insane. Make a film - lifted off an old SouthPark joke - about 2 handsome gay cowboys eating pudding and you'll be given the Oscar. If you dare make a film about 2 pretty Lesbians and you'll be derided to hell. That's Hollywood for you.
And on top of it, we have the new gay teacher teaching his pupils to say positive stuff about Hitler and Stalin to get to Oxford. Good grief, as if being gay isn't bad enough, they have to be totally perverse in their logic too; 1+1=0.
Anyhow who spews up such garbage ought to be placed in a cold cell only to be released after a perfect one-sitting recital of all the names of all the people Hitler and Stalin killed.

Don't get me wrong. I am not a homophobe- hey, I thought Ian McKellan- God's and Monster - was a great film. But History Boys is plain dishonest and repellent.
