I was recently at the world premier of Adam and Steve at the Tribecca Film Festival this April. I didn't quite know what to expect walking into the theater but I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with what I saw on screen. Most gay themed films over the past several years have bored me and depressed me to the point of a much-needed visit to my analyst. I know that there are important issues dealing with the gay community, but it is nice to see a film that looks past all of the usual topics points and moves on to very funny comedy. The writer director Craig Chester did a superb job at ramping up the humor and staying dedicated to keeping the story funny. When you think, that was funny; he turns it up and takes it even farther. The sell out crowd of about 1500 at Tribeca was incredible entertained by this film. There were very few dull moments and the audience kept pace with the humor. The guys at Funnyboy Films made a good choice making Adam and Steve. This film along with their first success of LATTERDAYS shows the potential for this company to be a strong force in the future of the film-making community.
