Quotes

[Father Dan has just tried to kiss Jeffrey]
Jeffrey: Wait! You're really a priest?
Father Dan: Of course.
Jeffrey: But... I mean, aren't you supposed to be straight and celibate?
Father Dan: Maybe you didn't hear me. I'm a CATHOLIC priest. Historically, that falls somewhere between chorus boy and florist.

It didn't get the credit it deserves.
13 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Jeffrey is the story of a young gay man, who, in this day of AIDS, decides to give up sex, and the very next day meets the hunk of his dreams. Steven Weber, Michael T Weiss and Patrick Stewart give Oscar worthy performanscs in a film few even know of. It is not truly a 'gay' film , but one about the confusion of true love and the heartbreak of loving some one who is ill. It will bring you to the brink of tears, and then make you laugh. I highly recommend it as a must see.
