So, just how gay IS Top Gun?

Val Kilmer was asked whether Gay Perry, his character in the movie Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, was the first gay character he'd ever played. "Only if you don't count Top Gun," he said.

It's pretty common by now to figure that that was the subtext. Here's a mock trailer which handles it with much more subtlety than you might expect.

And here's a clip that marries some of the more obvious moments to the famous Quentin Tarantino monologue from Sleep With Me that got the whole thing rolling. Incidentally, that monologue was written by Roger Avary, cowriter of Pulp Fiction.
