Storyline

Paul and Eddie have just begun previews for the new Off-Broadway musical "Adam and Steve Just the Way God Made 'Em." Their lives strangely mirror the characters they are playing. Paul is looking for the perfect man and Eddie is dealing with how his sexuality and faith can mix. After yet another disastrous dating experience, Paul has an epiphany. He is done dating and just wants to be a slut like the sexy chorus boys that share his dressing room. Eddie has to tell his parents that he's gay and is starring in a show that calls the bible the "Breeder's Informational Book of Living Examples". Eddie comes out to his family and Paul goes on Manhunt. Eddie's parents are destroyed by the news and Paul can't even have a good one-night stand. But after musical numbers with scantly clad tap dancing angels, a retelling of Genesis, tele-evangelists, a camp that attempts to turn gay kids straight, and a bunch of showtunes, everyone realizes that life gets better once they accept who they really are...

The Big Gay Musical
10 September 2012 | by (Cairo, Egypt) – See all my reviews

An off-Broadway musical-in-the-film vaudeville, the musical is called"Adam and Steve, Just the Way God Made Them", so the skeletal story, one could effortless divine is a blasphemous entertainment, aftr Adam and Eve failed to achieve what God's expectancy to blossom in the Eden (thanks to the forbidden fruit), he instead dabs in molding a gay couple, the new Adam and Steve, but the film has no consistence in promoting the musical, since its absolutely small- scale theater and its episodic occurrences only methodically adjusts itself to be the perfect foil in mirroring two leading actors' mundane lives, nevertheless the musical parts are arguably the redeeming features with a patchwork of the angelic dancing routines (the angel Dorothy is horridly over-the-top), corrective therapy to cure gayness and the Catholic kitsch sermons, which are partly insanely funny, partly inanely tedious.

There are no single ugly boys in the film, eye-candies are permeating, but the two leaders are considerably capable of doing more than just meet the eyes, Daniel Robinson gives an edge in his both physical movements and emotional thrust, (after a sudden and completely unexplained disappearance of his 3-weeks boyfriend, the once-believed-in-love boy decides to go wild), his rendition of "I WANNA BE A SLUT" is the crest of the entire film. Joey Dudding, who is dealing with the virgin coming-out cliché (with a bluff of HIV-panic), has his own moment in some strip- dancing solo presentation, but compared with Robinson's go-slutty transformation, his section has barely any praiseworthy flickering.

By and large the film is as kitschy as any of its peers, thinking it too much is plain pointless and it is a timely reminder of us to cherish the day.
