Entertainment Weekly
A majority oriented movie that assumes sophisticated familiarity with a sexual minority.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
So likable, we go with it on its chosen level.

New York Daily News
It's the first mainstream gay movie that feels totally comfortable in its shoes.
75
Miami Herald
The strength of the performances, along with the good will generated by these flawed but likable characters, carry the movie through.

Baltimore Sun
A slice-of-life where being gay is a fact of daily existence, not an excuse for existential dilemmas or grand tragedies.
67
Austin Chronicle
Funny and friendly and all-inclusive and unremarkable.
63
Philadelphia Inquirer
An undemanding and reassuring amiability that made it a crowd-pleaser at Sundance.

New York Post
Turns out to be a choppily written, unevenly acted exercise, no less shlocky and predictable than any of Hollywood's average second-string heterosexual comedies.
50
Chicago Tribune
Shallow though it may be, is a breakthrough.
38
Boston Globe
It plays like a pilot for what I imagine will be network TV's first all-gay sitcom.
36
Mr. Showbiz
Pushes the standard tropes of gay romance movies a few more steps toward full-blown cliché-dom.
