  1. 75
    A clever and big- hearted gay screwball comedy.
  2. First-time feature director Rashid has made a piece of eye candy that's irresistible. The point of this film may be to embrace reality, but frankly, who needs it?
  3. What makes the film so much fun is an ingenious plot device embedded in Rashid's sharply observed screenplay.
  4. 50
    An hour and a half of cultural and sexual headaches only barely leavened by MacLachlan's performance.
  5. 40
    Presumably writer-director Ian Iqbal Rashid chose Grant because Bogie's been done, but that didn't stop him from lifting Touch of Pink's plot wholesale from "The Wedding Banquet."
  6. Except for the piquant garnish of Mr. MacLachlan, the movie, written and directed by Ian Iqbal Rashid, is barely a cut above an amateur production. The attempts at humor fizzle, and the performances are wooden and overstated.
  7. It goes so far -- way too far -- as having a known actor play Grant.
