  1. It's not earthshaking or life-changing, but it's cute, occasionally predictable and only requires ACTUAL idiots, like Barry, to act like idiots. As formula entertainment goes, that's a pretty sweet deal.

    Writer-director Stewart Wade has gracefully expanded his short film, a festival fave, into a warmhearted tale carried by genuine affection and a charming cast rather than cutting one-liners and turbo-charged plotting.
  3. A wry romantic comedy of sexual confusion that deftly becomes increasingly serious without losing its sense of humor.
  4. A likable, extremely goofy piece of fluff.
  5. Reviewed by: Peter Debruge
    Full of unlikely misunderstandings.
  6. Leaving no cliché unturned, Coffee Date provides cheesy music, chats about "gaydar" and the obligatory are-you-looking-at-mine? urinal scene.
  7. Writer-director Stewart Wade expanded his festival-circuit short film into a blobby, watery feature-length enterprise, unredeemed by its cast (though Sally Kirkland shows up as Todd's mom).

    Arrrghhh! So awful I almost left the theater--and I haven't done that since Madonna's "Who's That Girl?". Full of Arrrghhh! So awful I almost left the theater--and I haven't done that since Madonna's "Who's That Girl?". Full of "seen-it-a-million-times" gay cliches, terrible performances, unlikely romance and the loony but usually watchable Sally Kirkland careening through a bad sit-com perfromance. This movie upholds the awful reputation of most gay flicks: banal, boring, whiney and dumb. Please, someone make another "Brokeback Mountain" quickly and spare us these "are-you-or-aren't -you travesties! Expand
