  • The butt of the hilarious and heartfelt screenplay by Paul Rudnick (Jeffrey) is homophobia, and his sting is wickedly on target. show more

  • This is a rare, "feel good" motion picture that doesn't insult our intelligence while making its play for our emotions. show more

  • The result is one of the jollier comedies of the year, a movie so mainstream that you can almost watch it backing away from confrontation, a film aimed primarily at a middle-American heterosexual audience. show more
