    San Francisco Chronicle

    Doesn't transcend the yawner template of coming-out films. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    The buoyant McMillan is a charming presence, but he's entirely miscast as a character described as moody and angry. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Inconsequential but intermittently charming. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Eschews the heavy sexual content (and most of the clichés) of so many gay films -- it also has a lot of heart. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Even if the story is hackneyed, it's hackneyed in a warm and universal way. show more

    Phil Hall Film Threat

    Has a terrible air of been-there/done-that. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    The movie's third act goes astray as the storyline shifts to Dorian's dating problems, which seem an overextended tangent to his coming-out story. Still, the film has a lot of playful dialogue and pixillated montages. show more

    Nathan Rabin The A.V. Club

    Dorian Blues covers extremely familiar territory, but does so with low-key wit and ingratiating charm. show more

    Melissa Levine Dallas Observer

    Its smarmy resolution just doesn't work; the lessons learned are a bit too medicinal. But we're willing to forgive, since it's otherwise a good-natured and enjoyable ride. show more

    Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times

    With its moments of comic relief overly exaggerated and at odds with its realistic tone, Dorian Blues is at its best at its most serious. show more
