Gaydar multi award winning best short comedy 120 film festivals
Gaydar is a 2002 short comedy film directed by Larry LaFond, written by LaFond and by Terry Ray and Larry Lafond. The film stars Terry Ray, Bryan Dattilo (from Days of Our Lives), Jennifer Echols, and Jim J. Bullock, and also features Charles Nelson Reilly in his last movie appearance.
Randy (Terry Ray) has a crush on a fellow office worker, Jack (Bryan Dattilo). Randy’s friend from the next booth over, Frankalina (Jennifer Echols) also has a big crush on Jack, but does not know whether he’s gay or straight. Randy comes across a "GAYDAR gun" at a yard sale put on by former partner of Maurice (Jim J. Bullock) which might just put an end to this mystery.
