Editorial Reviews

From the witty, whimsical mind of acclaimed writer Paul Rudnick (In & Out, Addams Family Values) and celebrated stage director Christopher Ashley comes a hilarious, star-studded, boy-meets-boy romantic comedy! Steven Weber, Patrick Stewart, Michael T. Weiss, Bryan Batt, OscarÂ(r) nominee* Sigourney Weaver, Golden GlobeÂ(r) nominee** Nathan Lane and OscarÂ(r) winner*** Olympia Dukakis star in this "warm and humorous exploration of all-too-human relationships" (Boxoffice) in the age of AIDS. Disenchanted with the not-so-romantic side of safesex, sweet, single and obsessive Jeffrey (Weber) vows to become completely celibate! No sooner has he sworn off sex than he meets hunky, sensitive Steve (Weiss). But just as passion starts to ignite,Steve reveals some earth-shattering information, leaving Jeffrey to choose between losing the man of his dreamsor taking a risk on what just might be true love!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enthusiastic If Not Gay April 19, 2005
Format:DVD
The professional reviewer missed the main point of Jeffrey's dilemma. He's not so afraid of getting AIDS; he's afraid of falling in love with a man who then dies of it. Most people figure a 50% chance of dying before their spouse; but taking on a person with a known, fatal disease throws those odds way out of kilter and creates a desperate, poignant situation.

Steve Weber is no gayer than George Bush but he certainly is an enthusiastic kisser. This was the first film I saw Michael Weiss in and he totally had me convinced he was gay. I knew Patrick Stewart isn't, but his performance is dead on.

Overall, a very funny movie with a big, big heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie - Very Funny and Romantic too! December 4, 2003
Format:DVD
I laughed at some of the negative reviews posted on here for this movie. This is a Paul Rudnik movie - He wrote "In & Out" "Adams Family Values" etc - this is not supposed to be "Longtime Companion" kids!
He tackles these topics from a "Neil Simon" point of view. Meaning wisecracks leading to the serious subjects. This is a COMEDY first and second tackles the issues of intimacy in the age of AIDS.
The performances are wonderful. Especially Patrick Stewart who should have been nominated for an Oscar. Steven Weber is adorable and Michal T Weiss is so hot he almost melts the film.
I highly recommend this very funny movie with a point. Plus I like romantic movies about ADULT gay men. You hardly see them. It's always a coming out story about young boys. That was done in an excellent way with 'beautiful thing' but move on gay filmmakers. Adult men deserve their love stories too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Classic" Returns March 12, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
When this movie was originally released by Orion pictures, the gay and lesbian community flocked to see Steven Webber, Patrick Stewart, Olympia Dukakis and Michael T. Weiss, among the other star studded cast each play a part in this rendition of Paul Rudnick's novel & play of the same name. The movie is much brighter and upbeat than the book. It is a great movie about life in the AIDS epidemic. I recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeper Than It Seems January 17, 2007
By Texan
Format:DVD
Not having seen the off-Broadway original stage version, I have no basis for comparing the film rendition. But if the stage version was "hilarious" and "a riot," as the blurbs on the dust jacket proclaim, the film is none of these things--but it is a superb work of art nevertheless and arguably more so. Jeffrey is the very troubling story of the tension and the choice between risk and misery. Jeffrey (Steven Weber), a gay man in mid-1990's New York City, at the height of the AIDS crisis and before the widespread use of the protease inhibitors and antiretrovirals that have made HIV infection a more-or-less manageable chronic condition rather than a guaranteed death sentence, decides to forgo sex in order to avoid becoming infected. However, his resolve is tested when he almost immediately makes the acquaintance of a handsome man in his gym (Steve Howard [Michael T. Weiss]), who is deeply attracted to him but whom he rebuffs systematically for fear of getting infected. Jeffrey does not know at this point that Steve is HIV-positive, but it is almost irrelevant because he refuses to get involved with any man for fear of becoming infected. Yet, he continues to run into Steve at various events which at least on the surface tie them together as members of New York City's gay community. While there comes a point, at the goading of his good friends, at which Jeffrey agrees to have dinner with Steve, the possibility of a relationship disappears when Jeffrey does learn about Steve's HIV status.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, sexy and sensitive May 27, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Don't let the gay storyline keep you from seeing this video. Although a couple scenes may be too graphic for some, the humor in the opening scenes helps get almost any viewer involoved in the story, which, by the end of the movie, will have you rooting for Jeffrey and Steve. And several of the scenes do appeal to the female viewers. Jeffrey (Steven Weber) is confused and afraid when having to deal with AIDS on a personal level, and Steve (Michael T. Weiss) is lonely and angry, and craves the meaningful relationship we all want and deserve. The well-known cast is impressive, and deserves a round of applause for making us all more aware of the devastating affects of the AIDS crisis on human relationships, and for reminding us that being HIV+ does not make a person any less of a person.

Format:DVD
Jeffrey follows a very predictable plot - a 'thirtysomething' gay man is jaded and confused by dating and sex in an era of HIV and emotional distancing. He meets a wonderful guy who is HIV positive and becomes scared and runs away. We then see him work through his issues to eventually become reunited with HIV positive guy. Hhhmmm, certainly sounds like a terrible Hollywood cookie-cutter plot so far.....
But what makes this movie special is the low budget nature and the use of 'arthouse' style tricks. Yes, every conceivable trick is employed here - artsy fade outs, character narrative (including direct to camera whilst other actors are frozen), dream sequences and an almost cartoonish quality to the performances. So if you're like me and adore the forementioned arthouse style of film making, this movie is a must see!
Whilst the overall plot may indeed be predictable, the journey to the end is filled with many wonderful moments. We have over the top characters providing hilarious comedy which is contrasted nicely to unexpected moments of raw emotion leading to an emotional rollercoaster of a movie.
Two actors particularly stand out in this movie. Michael T Weiss (from TV's The Pretender and Days of Our Lives ) excels as the HIV positive gay man who thinks he has found someone special in Jeffrey. He really delves deep into the character to deliver a wonderful three dimensional performance of a gay man who is looking for love. Patrick Stewart (well known for his role in Star Trek) plays a flamboyant, over the top, quick witted older gay man to perfection here. Just when you think his role is completely 1 dimensional, we also see a more human side to him.
A special mention must also be made of the numerous cameos made by well know Hollywood actors throughout the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the subject matter, but...
The movie arrived on time and is in fine shape, but the acting is, well, just mediocre, and the movie doesn't know if it is a spoof, or not.
