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...

Nothing here to see. Move along...
16 April 2010 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie is superficial in every way possible. Characters completely undeveloped. Story non existent. As for the script, it's possible to hear more meaningful dialog between two drunks after 2:00am in the most looser laden gay dive than in this shallow attempt at a musical. Speaking of music, it's terrible in this "musical". It begins and ends as a meaningless parade of gay stereotypes and cliché plot points: Cue the promiscuous sex, AIDS panic, and familial redemption.

A few unsuccessful shots are taken at religion but with nothing more than over done makeup and southern accents they just fall flat. There's a lot of skin and sex between guys, which for porn might be enough but for a feature length "film" seems a little out of place since there is basically no established characters with any depth or a plot line with any interesting detours. It's possible to tell this story in a meaningful way and even put it too song. But this movie falls flat in every possible way, bad script, bad music, bad acting, and wistful Broadway type vocals. It's actually difficult to comment on this movie because it's barely worth the effort. Bottom line, when a movie doesn't give you any reason to care about anything or anyone in it then there's, nothing to see here. Move along...
