The 24th Day Reviews

Gabriel Shanks
Mixed Reviews

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

No amount of fidgety editing and anxious soundtrack atonality can distract from the creakingly implausible scenario.

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

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

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

Tony Piccirillo's independent video feature suggests a second-rate Off-Off Broadway play as it might have been captured on a camcorder by a doting parent.

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.

Ken Fox
TV Guide's Movie Guide

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.

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

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

Film Journal International

The ceaseless twists and turns Piccirillo keeps introducing are at first intriguing, but eventually become tiresome, as if he's trying to hold our interest any way he can.

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

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.

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