    The two leads have a wonderful chemistry together.

    Funny how Madonna borrows Everett, Julia Roberts' gay pal from "My Best Friend's Wedding," and Bratt, Roberts' real-life beau, to be her co-stars. If only she could borrow her talent.

    Essentially an old-fashioned weepie gussied up for Y2K.
  4. That's a few too many agendas for one film.
  5. The movie has a well-meaning message about love and loyalty being the bedrock of real family values, but its good intentions sag as the story trades its air of mischievous comedy for trite sentimentality, arbitrary plot twists, and enough maudlin melodramatics to sustain a tabloid TV series.
  6. A misguided romantic serio-comedy aimed at women and gay men that ends up caricaturing both.
  7. Reviewed by: Robert Horton

    A dismal film, a flop as both 21st-century romantic comedy and gay "Kramer vs. Kramer."

Realistic and clever acting gives life to issues that have since become central to today's world. Fortunately, institutions have eased off homosexuals of late, this film justifies those changes.
