Chicago Reader
Directed by George Bamber from a witty screenplay by David Vernon, it veers between screwball farce and feel-good sitcom.

Variety
It's a crackpot of a soap opera, ornamented by a great deal of sexual humor, sexual innuendo and sex. Lead Daniel Letterle is a charmingly boyish actor, and the other featured players -- particularly veteran actress Meredith Baxter as Ethan's gay-wedding-planner mother -- are excellent.
63
It's none too deep and a tad cartoonish, but also fast-paced, filled with quotable one-liners and often very funny.

New York Post
A genially silly gay date movie.

Chicago Tribune
The film's tone veers from misjudged sincerity to shrill sketch comedy of the broadest stripe.

There's just not enough real heart to go along with the cutesiness.

The strip is now a cartoonish sitcom pretending to be a romantic comedy about a drama queen and his adventures in lust. The movie might have gotten away with it, were it interested in romance or comedy.

Miami Herald
Tiresome romantic comedy that reinforces every imaginable gay stereotype.
25
With words streaming out of their mouths instead of into bubbles, Ethan and his gang of past, present and future lovers sound laughingly unbelievable. They're on the road to inanity.
25
Mostly unfabulous.
