    The butt of the hilarious and heartfelt screenplay by Paul Rudnick (Jeffrey) is homophobia, and his sting is wickedly on target.
  2. 88
    This is a rare, "feel good" motion picture that doesn't insult our intelligence while making its play for our emotions.
  3. As a sharky, gay TV journalist investigating the story, Tom Selleck charms by playing in contrast to his own determinedly hetero persona.

    Over-the-top gay fun! It's deep and powerful themes are hidden amongst great laughs and an almost coming-of-age/coming-out-of-the-closet story. Kevin Kline and Tom Selleck kiss for ten seconds--do you need more of a reason? Full Review »

    A commercially successful mainstream out-of-the-closet comedy in the 90s mocking the stereotypical homophobia in the provincial midwestern America, directed by the voice-of-Yoda, Frank Oz (THE STEPFORD WIVIES 2004, 4/10), and stars a dapper Kevin Cline as Howard Brackett, a high school English teacher being outed on the 68th Oscar ceremony by his former student Cameron Drake (Dillon) in his BEST ACTOR acceptance speech, in addition to that, he is scheduled to marry his longtime fiancée Emily (Cusack) within three days.

    In & Out is a great movie. The combination of Kevin Kline as a gay teacher who's never known he's gay until his wedding day and Tom Selleck as a gay reporter who proves it to him are what makes In & Out the masterpiece it is. This is a great movie. Don't miss it. Full Review »
