The movie is never more than a hesitantly filmed recording of the play.

At times The 24th Day plays like a two-man actor's workshop. As navigated by talented actors and director, it nonetheless proves a riveting ride.

What might have proved reasonably compelling onstage comes across as forced on film, with credibility taking a back seat to contrivance.

Scott Speedman and James Marsden, two talented and attractive actors who know how to hold attention, perform with depth and range.

Despite strong performances, this drawn-out Day feels like a cross between the claustrophobic play it once was, and the R-rated After-School Special it wants to be.

Boasts one of the most ludicrous plots ever committed to digital video.

The battle of wits and the search for the truth goes along right up until the film's unpredictable ending.

Can perhaps be commended for attempting to raise serious moral issues, but not for the ham-fisted way it does so.

For all its flaws, it's still pretty effective, thanks to Scott Speedman and James Marsden.

There's something deeply troubling, not to mention cruel, about Piccirillo's willingness to use AIDS as the ultimate consequence in a scenario about truth and sexual behavior, and about a scenario in which a gay man is once again targeted as patient zero.

An ethically repugnant, relentlessly monotonous chamber drama that manages the difficult trick of boring and irritating its viewers simultaneously.
