Dorian Blues covers extremely familiar territory, but does so with low-key wit and ingratiating charm.
63
New York Post
Eschews the heavy sexual content (and most of the clichés) of so many gay films -- it also has a lot of heart.
60
With its moments of comic relief overly exaggerated and at odds with its realistic tone, Dorian Blues is at its best at its most serious.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
Inconsequential but intermittently charming.
60
Dallas Observer
Its smarmy resolution just doesn't work; the lessons learned are a bit too medicinal. But we're willing to forgive, since it's otherwise a good-natured and enjoyable ride.
50
Even if the story is hackneyed, it's hackneyed in a warm and universal way.
50
New York Daily News
The buoyant McMillan is a charming presence, but he's entirely miscast as a character described as moody and angry.
50
Doesn't transcend the yawner template of coming-out films.
50
The movie's third act goes astray as the storyline shifts to Dorian's dating problems, which seem an overextended tangent to his coming-out story. Still, the film has a lot of playful dialogue and pixillated montages.
20
Has a terrible air of been-there/done-that.
