I think you're missing the point of Gabe's discussion, Tony. Those are blatantly, no doubt about, no beating around the bush homosexual moments/films. Gabe's talking about films that aren't necessarily gay or straight but might seem to have some undertones and ambiguity to them.
Oh. So, will Undercover Brother count then?
The Simpsons (although yes I know it's tv) and not just Waylen Smtihers....
Does the Crying Game enter here?
i dont think Xena counts anyway, i believe gabrielle was openly gay
Top Gun
Electra Glide in Blue.
Return of the King
Star Wars IV, V, VI - Come on the droids!!!

I would think lesbian sex in Monster and DEBS if that will count "gay".

I'll add a rather obvious one to the discussion, Batman & Robin.

Also, if I remember correctly, I remember a prank gay chat on the movie Closer.
Thinking about my discussion....
I was thinking about my discussion with Eliason about the presence, or in his opinion lack of homoerotic undertones in The Transporter, and I remebered a conversation I'd had on this subject with some friends, unfortunatly none of which was actually gay, so it was really all hetero-hearsay on our parts.

Here's a list of movies we came up with that contained what we saw as gay undertones. The rule was that none of the characters or dialogue could be openly gay. War or sports related comradery and such platonic love were also kind of against the rules, though they could be broken...

Nightmare on Elm Street 2
Ice Age
Driven
The Transporter (sorry Eliason)
(also nammed was Xena, but that's TV)

anyone else have some? I'm looking for movies that are either tongue-in-cheek about their characters sexuality, or movies who's filmmakers may have some repression issues. Here, even though I thought it transended sexual undercurrents, I'll also say The Lord of the Rings.

...and please, let's be as mature as we can about this one guys. No offensive remarks, this is meant in good fun. Anyone actually and honestly offended by this just let me know and I'll take it down.
