    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.
  2. 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.

    It hits more often than it misses, and the best parts are always the simplest, in which the stars wing it with nothing to go on but their natural chemistry.
  4. 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.
  5. Much of Craig Chester's good-hearted love story Adam & Steve is silly and contrived, but the film boasts four engaging actors.
  6. Strikes an unsatisfying balance between serious romantic texture and outright farce.
  7. Ultimately Adam & Steve mainly goes to prove that indie gay romantic comedies can be just as witless, vulgar and over the top as their straight, major studio counterparts.

    Please go see this movie! It's nice to see a fun, colorful gay movie which is just out to make you laugh (and you will) and feel good. Please go see this movie! It's nice to see a fun, colorful gay movie which is just out to make you laugh (and you will) and feel good. Proves love stories about gay men don't have to be depressing. The supporting cast is amazing, Parker Posey almost walks away with the film. This is a must see for Posey fans. Just shows she is one of the funniest most unique actresses working today. She gets some of the best one liners as the female best friend of are gay male protaginist, i've seen in years. Witty fun and for everyone gay or straight. Expand
