    In a perfect world, movies this clever would open in theaters every weekend. Maybe some day.
  2. Reviewed by: Albert Williams

    The players deftly balance flip caricature with a surprisingly moving depiction of those trapped in the celluloid closet.
  3. A talented craftsman of dark raillery, Day and his fixation on Hollywood melodrama are indulged to delicious effect in his sophomore effort.
  4. Wastes its promising premise with a wavering tone that veers uneasily between camp humor and, pardon the expression, straightness.
  5. It has verve, color and energy, but there's something fundamentally bogus about it.
  6. Played in a loud sketch-comedy style that might be described as "Gay Mad TV." The haranguing, badly acted farce wears out its comic welcome within half an hour.
