The definition of cheesecake - and its counterpart, beefcake - was a topic of some debate on the Film Review Show after Mark referred to Richard Blinky Gere as the "best cheesecake in the world." A listener wrote in complaining that "cheesecake" could only apply to women - for example, Jessica Alba in Fantastic 4 - whereas "beefcake" applied to men, as in Heath Ledger in Casanova.

Mark responded that the listener simply did not know their gay theory - "beefcake is butch, good-looking men; cheesecake is not-butch, good-looking men."
