Dave Holmes & Sharon Hhttp://proudlyresents.com/daveholmes/ouston: “Ben & Arthur”

Dave Holmes & Sharon Houston proudly resent “Ben & Arthur.”  Dave Holmes found this terribly made movie that could have set the gay marriage back 50 years.   It’s a pro-gay marriage movie that will make you anti-movie. I believe if the supreme court justices recognized gay rights just so they never had to watch “Ben & Arthur” again.

Pro Gay Marriage, Anti Being a Good Movie.

Dave, Sharon and I talk about bad writing, a fake church set, a TOGO’s that won’t go.  Ben and/or Arthur is dating Ben and/or Arthur. Gay marriage is legal for a minute and in that time they have set up a trip to Hawaii for their gay marriage, reunited with a homophobic brother, fought with a wife with terrible  gaydar and Mildred.

Watch the movie that almost brought down gay marriage below.

Dave Holmes has a new memoir out called “Party of 1.” Here’s what EW said about it…

Dave Holmes might be a familiar face if you were an MTV junkie, or if you follow his writing and TV hosting gigs across the pop culture landscape. If not, consider this your introduction: Dave Holmes will publish his memoir, Party of One: A Memoir in 21 Songs, on June 28, 2016, in which he charts his own coming-of-age through the songs he’s listened to along the way.
