In The D Train, Dan (Jack Black) is still the class reject as he approaches his 20-year reunion. In former schoolmate turned D-list actor Oliver (James Marsden), a pansexual stud, Dan sees someone who'll surely bring all the other grads to the yard, and to clinch his peer, Dan hatches a plan that ultimately lands him bent over in Oliver's bed. You read right: The DTrain ditches the platonic winks of standard bromances and penetrates the sexual boundary. It seems unprecedented for a mainstream comedy, as does the way the film tackles modern male identity. Dan's need for validation upends his life, but the presumably straight husband and father is never emasculated by his "gay sex." Opening a series of personal floodgates, Dan's romp with Oliver doesn't strip him of his manhood--it makes him a better man.
The D Train is in theaters. Watch the trailer below:
