    San Francisco Chronicle

    A genuinely affecting love story with something to say about such contemporary obstacles to affection as weird families, hot exes, addictions, anonymous hookups, homophobia, irony, gay two-stepping -- and the difficulty of connecting no matter what gender you go for. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Co-stars Parker Posey and Chris Kattan offer minor diversions, but the humor never rises to the quality any New Yorker, regardless of sexual orientation, would expect. show more

    A mostly bland, sporadically crude, by-the-numbers romantic comedy about two gay men in love. show more

    Marrit Ingman Austin Chronicle

    It's the most honest, refreshing comedy about love – gay, straight, or both – I've seen in many moons, and at the end everyone's problems are solved by a country-western dance battle with drag doyenne Jackie Beat on the mic. show more

    Sean Axmaker Seattle Post-Intelligencer

    It wobbles between a conventionally quirky lighthearted goof and an oddball farce in which character is sacrificed for sight gags. show more
