    "Queer as Folk's" Peter Paige makes a strong debut as a writer/director with this original black comedy.
  2. The ending is a little too neat and smacks of wishful thinking, but Paige has created an engaging and insightful entertainment with considerably more substance than most small-budget, independent gay films.
  3. 70
    A consistently provoking dark comedy that not only sheds light on our cynical society, but on mentally unstable people who find solace in children.
  4. Dramatically miscalculated satire.
  5. Say Uncle may be trying to address gay persecution and social paranoia, but it mostly comes off as a study of arrested development. The movie's most laudable gamble is its refusal to make either Maggie or Paul sympathetic, but the moral subtleties are obscured by a one-dimensional script and a protagonist as self-centered and lacking in expression as a fetus.
  6. An acutely misguided, purported satire dealing with the prickly subject of child molestation.
  7. 0
    Laughless, pointless and downright creepy, Say Uncle is a would-be black comedy.
