4 Stars! 70s G.A.Y. Night - Definately Worth a look...By Pete Shuttleworth from Hemel Hempstead , 16 Feb 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a good film. I laughed out loud. I wanted to know how it would end. I cared about the two main characters and what is more I had seen enough trailers to know the half of it. This film is about personal challenges and contradictions; family and friend ridiculousness and realism; behavioural cause and consequence. It happens to be about two guys in love with one another - so sue me! It happens to tell a story across 20 odd years very well. It happens to have an excellent sound track. It happens to be one of the best gay films I have seen since I started to rent from this site. I repeat: it made me laugh and I wanted to stay with the film to the end. That is what a good movie should do. There are honest performances (apart from over the top Alex Arquette) and I was convinced. However, the earth didn't shake; noone's life will change after seeing this film, and there have been much punchier endings but you could do much much worse than watch this film on a Friday night with the person you met, are still with, who might benefit from the odd reminder as to what's its all about... okay ...okay already... it's a gay chick flick with 4 stars and a Brad Pitt look alike to boot - watch it!! I loved it.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideWell done, nice story and characters, shame about the ending... Definitely not your Holywood happy ever after film.
Entertaining and enjoyableBy exetertim (14 reviews) from London , 12 Feb 2012A nice film to watch and it is also enjoyable, but there is nothing remarkable about it. It also is a bit sad at the end, which seems to be how all gay films (the ones that try to have a meaning to them that is) end up!
Gay TripBy Emjay69 (341 reviews) from Kidlington, Oxford , 29 Nov 2011I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It's probably not everyone's cup of tea but it's well worth a watch. There are a few unanswered questions at the end but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that the love shines through.
Could quite easily form part of my collection.
Yet another disappointing gay movieBy richthekid (2 reviews) , 23 Nov 2011Ponderous,predictable,totally unbelievable and with some of the worst hairdo's/wigs in gay movie history. The two leads have the chemisry of Olivia Newton John and Gene Kelly in Xanadu-i.e. none. Being a gay romance is has to be tragic, this movie is more manipulative than Beaches but the only thing I cried at was the bad 70's and 80's fashion. Rent a John Waters movie instead.
