Trivia

Bryan Batt was in the Broadway musical "Cats", which is an in-joke during the movie (his character is also in the musical as well.) See more »

Goofs

In the cloakroom scene at the memorial, the door to the room is left ajar when the characters enter the room, but in some of the cuts you can see that it is closed. Many of the cuts showing the door both ajar and closed are immediately back to back making the change very obvious. See more »

Quotes

Jeffrey: But Darius is a dancer. He's in "Cats."
Sterling: Exactly. I said you needed a boyfriend, not a person.

Entertaining, if not great cinema
25 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Rudnick's right, he's unbeatable (Addams Family Values, In & Out) and when he's not, he reeks (Isn't She Great). Not having seen Jeffrey as a play, I can't attest to its workability in that form, but as a film, it never really gets off the ground. But as a series of loosely-connected vignettes, it's entertaining.

The cameos by various stars are very good; Patrick Stewart's performance outshines the vehicle; and a number of trenchant points about America's ongoing confusion about sexuality are made.

I have to keep writing because there's a minimum number of lines of text, which is a completely stupid rule.
