Product Description

Teenage Goth couple Adam and Rhonda are club hopping when Adam spots a dancer he is immediately attracted to. Taking the dancer home, Adam is introduced to drugs by him, but their sexual escapade is interrupted by an embarrassing episode and the dancer leaves quickly. Years later Adam accidentally stabs his dog and brings him to a hospital where he is treated by a psychiatrist who once studied veterinary medicine. The doctor (Steve) and Adam start dating and fall in love. Rhonda, who has stayed Adam's close friend through the years, begins to date Steve's straight roommate at the same time. Months later Steve realizes that Adam was the Goth teenager with whom he had the embarrassing encounter, and breaks off the relationship, afraid that Steve will reject him when he finds out the truth

Review

A wise, hilarious gay-marital romp … the entire cast is perfection. --Michael Musto, Village Voice

Warm--and often hysterically funny--comedy about two decent guys who endure some really humiliating complications on the way to love. --Anne Stockwell, The Advocate

Irreverent, farcical romp... Adam & Steve tries to do for the gay film what There s Something About Mary did for the hetero sex comedy: artfully blend raunchiness and sincerity. --Mark Dundas Wood, Backstage

By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 10, 2006
Format: DVD
ADAM AND STEVE is a movie you want to succeed: the idea of an honest gay relationship developing between two guys with a weird history and subsequent difficulties forming meaningful intimacy, the presence of four fine actors, and a film that seems to take itself not too seriously. The problem is that writer/director/star Craig Chester just seems to have put too much into his bag for one film and in doing so he diluted the strength it could have had.

Adam (Craig Chester) first met Steve (Malcolm Gets) in a dance bar in 1987 where Adam (accompanied by his grossly obese friend Rhonda - Parker Posey in a fat suit) is dazzled by Steve's good looks and on a bet from Rhonda ends up on the date from hell: after snorting coke cut with baby laxative the two men become amorous with some rather embarrassing consequences. 17 years later Adam is a bird watcher guide while his friend Rhonda, now without a single pound of fat, is a sadly unsuccessful standup comic. Adam inadvertently injures his beloved dog and in trying to get help at a human hospital encounters psychiatrist Steve and the two begin a courtship.

Neither man is able to cope with the idea of monogamous intimacy yet they develop a solid relationship, despite visits with dysfunctional families (Adam's Jewish family are ridiculously accident prone while Steve's Texas redneck parents are coldly homophobic). Steve has a straight roommate Michael (Chris Kattan) who plays into Steve's life the way Rhonda plays into Adam's life. Eventually memory recovers the past, it is dealt with and the ending is very predictable - as well as bit sappy.

Each of the main characters does a fine job with their respective roles. It is the sidebar diversions that mess up the storyline rather than enhancing it.

Best word that comes to mind is "mindless". If your looking for a picture that is pure entertainment, absolutely no substance, above average exaggerated acting, then this is for you.

I absolutely laughed all the way through. Lifted my spirits.

Totally recommend you get this picture out and watch with a group of friends.

In time this picture will build to 'cult status'.

Okay, I'm a sap for a romantic comedy; I like a happy ending, so sue me. This movie is funny and sweet, well acted, and has great production values. The characters are very endearing and seem like real, everyday kind of guys. The second time I watched it was even better because there was much I missed or didn't appreciate the first time. Definitely worth buying and watching over and over.

I had seen this film edited on Logo, but had no idea how much more funny it would be unedited, as it should be by law, and on a large screen. Sure, it is a weird, somewhat disgusting, and quirky film with silly dialogue, but it really works. It does have a seriously romantic moment at the end that does make one want to cry. The extra of how this film came to be is very interesting with interviews of the cast.

The choreography is superb, and the melodramatic humour is very fitting and good for what it is. There is also an included lesson from the choreographer of the dance number. No, I didn't attempt it because I find line dancing tedious to learn, but its fun to watch, and makes one feel good.

This is a hidden gem of a comedy film that every comedy lover should see regardless of the subject matter. I'm glad I bought it.

The film "Adam & Steve," written by, directed by and starred in by Craig Chester-- he plays the bungling addict-in-recovery gay Jewish character who now conducts bird-watching tours in New York but seventeen years ago in 1987, was a twenty-something in white makeup-- is an uneven movie, a romantic comedy but that has its moments. Some of them are the country-western line-dance number stepped to the hilarious song "S--t Happens; Adam's lover Steve's singing from "The Sound of Music" of "Something Good"; the title itself, which takes the oft-quoted statement from the religious right, that God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, and turns it on its head, for example; the wedding scene for all its hokiness is quite moving.

On the other hand, parts of the movie are way over the top-- the diarrhea scene is disgusting, much of Rhonda's (Parkey Posey) stand-up comedy routine is boring, and Chris Kattan as Steve's straight roommate is miscast.

"Adam & Steve" is certainly not up to the quality of "Brokeback Mountain" but is better than a dozen low-budget gay-themed movies, whatever that means, the names of which I have long since forgotten.

Directing, writing and playing one of the title characters, Craig Chester attempts to pull a Streisand triple play with this low-budget 2005 film, but his strenuous multi-tasking results in an unwieldy combination of character-driven romantic comedy and flat-out farce that doesn't quite satisfy the requirements of either genre. For the most part, Chester seems to be making a gay version of "When Harry Met Sally" starting with a flashback to 1987 when Adam, a self-loathing goth accompanied by his overweight and equally morose friend Rhonda, meets Steve, a glam-rock dancer on disco night at a trendy Manhattan club. A night of cocaine laced with baby laxative leads to an unfortunate episode which has to be seen to be believed. Sparks fly when they accidentally meet each other again many years later not knowing who the other is.

It's refreshing to see a gay movie that frees itself from more serious concerns like rights violations and persecution, but the film is ultimately done in by Chester's reliance on standard rom-com clichés and a wildly fluctuating tone, including an over-the-top finale that hinges on a country-style dance-off. Chester and Malcolm Gets are engaging if a bit bland in the lead roles. Perhaps because he has played so many sexually ambiguous characters on "Saturday Night Live", Chris Kattan is oddly stilted as Steve's straight roommate, while Parker Posey easily steals the picture as Rhonda, now skinny and a stand-up comic, with her natural sassiness and deft comedy timing. Several familiar faces show up in extended cameos - Paul Sand and Julie Hagerty as Adam's jinxed parents, Melinda Dillon as Steve's corn-belt mother and Sally Kirkland as an enthusiastic drug counselor. There are a surprising number of extras on the 2006 DVD - a solid commentary track from Chester and Gets, a making-of featurette, some deleted scenes, a gag reel and even a dance lesson to replicate the strutting moves in the finale. But see it for Posey's quirky charms.
