Hang on, wait.
Pause the film, mate.
Where you off to dressed like this? Grocery shopping? Me and the girls are going to Hades.
I thought that was a gay club.
Why are you going to a gay club? Attractive women prefer gay clubs so there's not a bunch of guys there competing to get our numbers.
There's no competition? Give me five minutes to get changed.

I'm sorry? Sorry, you asked about my height.

It's just that sometimes if I think someone's making fun of my height, I get a little bit you know what I mean? I meant no offense.

No, we're not doing that again.
- Yes, I spent 12.
99 on it.
- No, we're not doing that.
Also, you better be on your best behavior tonight because this party is going to be filled with tastemakers and groundbreakers.
Oh, wow, are there going to be trailblazers or trendsetters there? Okay, you are disinvited.
- Really, that's it? Happens that quickly? - Yeah, yeah.
- Happens fast.
- Yeah? You know what, though? Seriously, don't don't push it tonight.
Don't try too hard.
You don't need to teach me lessons, love, all right? I know how to charm gay people.
I got a lot of gay friends.
- Oh, you do? - Yeah.
Name three.
The guy you met at the club is your friend? I wouldn't say a good friend, but I'd certainly consider him a pal, yeah.
Okay, a second? I think my aunt might be a lesbian.
- Your aunt? - Yeah.
She certainly dresses like one.
And then a third one? The woman that my aunt's been living with for the last 20 years.
"Auntie Maureen.
" Oh, great.
Give me that wine.
I'm gonna put it in a gift bag.
- What did you do, order a cab? - No.
- Hey.
- Hello.
Look, someone dressed up for movie night.
Oh, wait.
I'm sorry, man.
I comp I completely forgot about movie night.
Oh, really? Yeah.
I'm sorry, I've got we're going to a dinner party.
Can you get out of it? I can't miss it, mate.
There's a guy there and he runs a modeling agency.
If I get in with him, he can fix me up with models.
You know that's one of my dreams.
So I I woulda made other plans.
That's all.
- I know - You've done this to me two times in a row.
I know, I know, I know.
But why don't you look, why don't you stay here, man? You can watch the movies on the big-screen TV.
Just chill out.
Put the surround sound on and everything.
It's gotta be better than the motel, right? No, it is, it is.
You're right.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
I'm sorry, man.
- Okay, gotta go.
- All right.
- See you later.
- Have fun.
And if you get hungry, there's some Chinese food in the fridge.
- Great.
- Don't eat it, obviously, 'cause I'm gonna have that tomorrow, but the number is on the side of the place, so just give 'em a ring.
They'll deliver.
All right? See you, man.
Ah, hello.
- Welcome.
- Hi.
I brought you some wine.
- Oh, how sweet - We did.
It was from both of us.
Yeah, this is my good friend Stuart.
- Hello, Stuart.
- Hello.
- What a beautiful place you have.
- Thank you.
Thank you.
Everyone, I'd like you to meet Stuart and Jessica.
You made it.
I was invited.
Andy, Stuart.
Yes, yes, from the club.
Good to see you.
Oh hey.
Oh, do you Good to see you again.
Sorry, what's your name again? Oh, this is Armand, my boyfriend.
Good to meet you.
Jessica, come here.
Lovely gay couple here.
- Oh, hello.
- Hi.
- And this chap here as well.
- Hi.
Well, I think it's time for a toast.
A toast, everyone.
To Margo.
Thank you for welcoming us to your home.
And to an evening of good conversation and better friends.
And a world where people of all shapes and sizes, colors, creeds, persuasions can live in harmony.
- Cheers.
- Wait, hang on.
Without fear of discrimination or religious intolerance towards those who do not choose who they love I'm so sorry I'm late.
I passed a billboard with Channing Tatum on it and I had to pull over.
Yep, not quite the time for humor, though, 'cause we're just in the middle of a toast.
- Oh, sorry.
- Yeah.
To uh an end of prejudice.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
I could never be accused of prejudice.
As we all know, I went down on a Samoan bartender once.
Good for you.
Good for you, mate.
Margo has all of this made from scratch.
Oh! Thank you.
So, ladies, what do you do for a living? - I am an actress.
- Ah.
- I'm an actor.
- Ah.
What about you? Runs a modeling agency.
Well remembered.
And Armand works at "Vanity Fair.
" He's one of the editors of the "Vanities" section.
- Oh, really? - I love that section.
Now, what is the "Vanities" section? 'Cause that sounds fascinating.
I write profiles on up-and-coming actresses.
He discovered Annie Hathaway when she was nobody.
Rachel McAdams when she was nobody.
Amy Adams when she was nobody.
Well, I'm a nobody.
Can I be in it? Oh, I'm serious.
Put me in it.
Well, I'm more of a nobody than she is.
Oh, definitely not.
Armand, so, "Vanity Fair.
" That must be a great job.
Yes, it's kinda like my dream gig.
I think it's great that you're living your dream.
Can I say that? 'Cause so many people, you know, like you guys, never get the chance.
There was a young chap when I was at school, um, and he was bullied mercilessly.
We used to break his bike and push him over and steal his little hat and throw it back and stuff.
And when he was 15 years old, he took an overdose of pills.
Killed himself.
And I'm pretty certain it's 'cause we all thought he was gay.
I'm sorry, I thought I was invited to a dinner, not a wake.
Although that waiter is giving me rigor mortis in the crotch, so I cannot control him.
Margo, where's the bathroom, please? - Oh, down the hall to the right.
- Thank you.
Wow, look at this place.
The Pritch parlor is super swank.
So what movie you want to watch? I got "Lincoln Lawyer," I got "Perfect Murder," I got loads of 'em.
I got Listen, Wade, we could watch a movie, but we could also teach Stuart a little lesson for leaving you in the lurch.
Yeah, but, you know, Kives, he's got his reasons.
It's fine.
I'm not talking about anything crazy.
No, I don't wanna.
It's a little mischief.
Show him he can't treat you this way.
Right? I mean, I guess if it's only mischief.
Where's his bedroom? Down here? Yeah.
Jessica, how long have you been acting? Oh, um, ten years.
And have we seen you in anything? Yes, I was actually the female lead of an action film called "White Venom Two.
" With Willem Dafoe.
And guess who was in "White Venom" One? Hello.
Actually, it's funny.
That's how we met.
We were both auditioning for "White Venom" and I got the part, and the movie made a ton of money, and then so they wanted to make a sequel and they asked me to do it, but they wanted me to do nudity and I felt that it was a bit exploitative, but Jess, no such qualms.
She just jumped straight in, whipped it out.
There she was.
She did it.
Yeah, well, most of the nudity did get cut out - after the test screenings.
- Yeah.
I just wish it had gotten a theatrical release.
Oh, it did.
Number one film in Korea for six weeks.
Yes, in Korea.
Uh, North or South? Join us for some coffee in the lounge.
Hey, hey, hey.
I think I've been judging the mood wrong.
Oh, you think? Okay, there's no need for sarcasm.
What I've realized is, the gay fellas, they love the outrageous jokes.
So listen, I've been looking a few up in the bathroom, okay.
I just need you at some point to just say, "Oh, you know, Stuart's a hilarious gag man.
" - And I'll rattle a few off.
- Don't do jokes.
You're not funny.
- What are you talking about? I'm funny.
- You are not funny, okay? - I am funnier than you.
- When have you ever said a funny thing? - I'm funny all the time.
- Come on, I gave you my Wi-Fi code.
- Ugh.
Okay, fine.
- Thank you.
You need to help me out with something because Amelia is all over Armand, trying to weasel her way into "Vanity Fair.
" You haven't been doing that yourself? - No.
- No? Okay.
I mean, if he wants to put me in the "Vanities" section, - then that's his prerogative.
- Sure.
I just need you to, sort of, compliment me.
Just talk about my work.
- Well, you better laugh at my jokes.
- Okay, yeah, I will.
Well, my agent always tells me that you can't look at Twitter.
Guys, do you mind if I interrupt for one second? I do apologize, but, um, I would feel bad if I didn't take this opportunity just to flag up to you, Armand, that you really should put Jessica in your magazine 'cause she is a great actress.
Oh, Stuart, you're embarrassing me.
I know, I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, but Stuart, tell us a joke.
He's hilarious.
Ah, what do you call two gay Irishmen? Patrick Fitzmichael, and Michael Fitzpatrick.
It's good to have a bit of a laugh.
Have some fun.
I like you guys 'cause you got a great sense of humor.
That's what I love about you dudes.
You know what I mean? Did you sorry, I'm trying to remember.
When we were in the club, did you mention something about fixing me up with a model? Do you remember? - Oh, yeah, yeah, the club.
- Oh.
We were just talking 'cause you were in the agency and, you know, I'm tall, they're tall.
There you go.
I should set I will set you up.
- How about that? - Thank you, I appreciate it.
- Okay.
- Thank you, thank you.
Maybe now.
- Huh? - Huh? I'm just saying, maybe we could do it now.
- Why not? - Why not? Hey, Wade Hope I didn't blink.
Oh, yeah.
Just a little delicious hand soap.
Would you go ethnic? It's a good question.
Um I think in the right circumstances, I would, yeah.
- Okay.
- Who've you got in mind? Well, I have a gorgeous Vietnamese here.
Keep talking.
Oh, me love her long ti that's a lovely looking girl.
Don't you think? - Yep.
Very sweet face.
- Yeah? I was there for months doing "West Side Story" actually, and it took every little bit of willpower to not go in there and just shove my face full Okay, wait a minute, you were in "West Side Story"? But you were the understudy, right? That is correct.
I was the understudy in London, and then on Broadway, I was the lead.
Listen, I saw this model on a billboard on Hollywood Boulevard and she's rather, sort of won my heart.
Oh, my God, that's Kimberly.
Andy, text her right now, see what she's doing.
- I'm on it.
- She loves tall men.
Oh, okay.
All right.
Okay, "Hey, Kim, just met a great guy" - Andy.
- Hang on, he's busy.
- What is it? - No, stay focused.
Come on.
- Amelia was in "West Side Story.
" - It's - Cool.
- Make her sing.
No, I'm not going to sing.
It'll make me look like the biggest show-off in the world.
- Yeah.
- No, it won't.
Or will it? I would love to hear something.
So would I, but let's get this bloody message sent, shall we? Okay, fine, I'll sing one song, but one.
Hold my hand and I'll take you there Somehow Someday Some Where.
Sorry, I get emotional.
Thank you.
- Amazing.
- Just fabulous.
Thank you.
Please oh, I'm sorry, I sat right on you.
Yeah, you did.
- Gorgeous.
- Thank you.
- That was wonderful.
- Thank you.
I didn't realize we were doing our party pieces tonight.
Should I do mine? Do you sing? No, I am actually more of a dancer.
Oh, what kind of dance? Tap.
Did you bring your tap shoes to this party tonight? No.
But I can make some.
It's been a little while, so please be kind.
Could you come down? Oh, no, it's good.
It's a good height.
Please, come down.
- Oh, Kimberly says she's coming over.
- Really? Tell her she better hurry up or she's going to miss Sammy Davis, Jr.
Thank you.
Well done.
That was very brave.
Yeah, thank you.
Well, you know, I normally I perform with music.
Thank you for sharing it with us.
It was it was very memorable.
This party is entirely too clothed.
Margo, can we go in the hot tub? Tub time.
Bathing suits in the bathroom down the hall.
Right this way.
- Yes.
- Getting naked.
What the hell was that? Yeah, that that didn't really go as well as I thought that it would.
You think? Yeah, and you know I got Amelia breathing down my neck.
Of course.
Would you invite Armand and everyone over to our house for dinner? And that way, I could get him one-on-one.
I could impress him a little easier.
How am I just going to invite everyone to our house? Casually bring it up.
But, I mean, don't come off like you're trying too hard.
- Ask casually.
- No, no, I wouldn't try too hard.
That would be the worst thing to do in this situation.
I will do this for you because I have a date with a model.
- Great, yeah, cool.
Yeah, do it.
- Okay, all right.
Come on, Happy Feet.
Kives, "To do list.
" Look, "Finish coding.
" - "Don't finish coding.
" - Ha ha.
I love it.
I love it.
- Hey, you know what? - What? Maybe we shouldn't be on his computer.
That seems like a violation.
Listen to me, Wade, you're a great guy, okay? But you're too nice, man.
I think we're going easy on him.
Wait a minute, look.
Dude, come here.
Come here.

No, I honestly don't think you're listening to my point.
Please go.
It was a pleasure meeting you.
On a morning from a Bogart movie In a country where they turn back time You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre Contemplating a crime She comes out of the sun in a silk dress Running like a watercolor in the rain Don't bother asking for explanations She'll just tell you that she came In the year of the cat Sorry about the you know, getting thrown out of the hot tub and everything.
