  • There's nothing wrong with social message melodramas that tackle the AIDS crisis and certainly not every gay release has to please crowds like "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," but Schlim has a good-time movie with a likable cast. show more

  • Call me crazy-stupid, but locker-room anal sex aside, didn't Christina Aguilera just enact this scenario last fall in "Burlesque"? show more

  • Once AIDS rears its head, this nostalgic look back goes into melodrama mode - and quickly descends from bad to much, much worse. show more
