“Being Gay Is Really Expensive” Says The ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ Red Band Trailer

"Being Gay Is Really Expensive" Says The 'I Love You Phillip Morris' Red Band Trailer

No Comment From GLAAD At This Time

With the controversy of last week surrounding the “Electric cars are gay” gag in “The Dilemma” trailer now pretty much forgotten (we guess GLAAD and Universal are best buds now?), a new trailer may draw the ire of the group.

Roadside Attractions has dropped a red-band spot (yeah, don’t play this one at work) for the delayed and soon-to-be-released comedy “I Love You Phillip Morris.” The story revolves around a con man (Jim Carrey) who begins an affair with his cellmate (Ewan McGregor) when he’s sent to prison. But wait, why does he start stealing? Apparently because “being gay is really expensive.” No word yet from GLAAD regarding their thoughts on the dialogue.

The film has already been released overseas and after changing hands and having release dates bumped numerous times this year, Roadside Attractions has acquired the film and locked it in for a December 3rd release date. Check out the trailer after the jump; this is probably the best spot for the film we’ve seen and we definitely chuckled throughout. We’re looking forward to seeing it.
