I thought it was funny and cute (although I hate to use that particular word for it). Okay, as a big fan of the late Kevin Coughlin, I admit to being somewhat biased, but not so much as to not recognize a bad movie when I see one. While I'm sure some will complain that it's portrayal of gays is stereotyped and offensive, you have to remember that it was made in 1969! That was a time when Paul Lynde was forced to play the frustrated father of teenagers in movies and sitcoms. For a movie to admit the existence of gays as anything other than the villains who killed "because they are sick and depraved" or some such nonsense, was a big step in the right direction. In this movie the straight guys become friends with their gay landlord and his lover, while the Straight guys' friends and families are judgmental and in at least one case malicious. So, please cut them some slack for at least trying to present the gay characters as decent, kind people even if their wrists are a tad limp!
