Trivia

Adam Greer and 'Carrie Preston' originated the roles of Rick and Sally in the stage play. See more »

Goofs

The wall telephone (in Guy's apartment), is not period. They didn't have phones like that until the late 60's. The phone cord is not accurate either. That phone appears to have a modular connection, and not the thick type cord in the older phones. See more »

Quotes

Guy Stone: We're both gay.

What a fun, fun film!
5 March 2005 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

"Straight-Jacket", despite it's horror film title is one of the best comedies, gay or straight, that I've seen in a long, long time. The sharp-witted script is a delight and the look of the film is great. You really feel like you're watching one of those old 20th Century Fox Cinemascope films from the Fifties (with color by DeLuxe, of course!) Especially wonderful is the new heartthrob discovery Adam Greer, who melts both the main character's heart as well as the audience's. It may seem hard to believe that a vain Hollywood movie star like Guy Stone (the film's protagonist) could fall in love with a Marxist novelist, but Greer makes that plot twist seem not only plausible, but inevitable. Veronica Cartwright (who I loved vomiting up all those cherries in "The Witches of Eastwick") gives another memorable performance as Stone's agent, Jerry. I can hardly wait until this film comes out on DVD so I can buy it.
