Adam & Steve (2005)



Critic Consensus: Gross-out comedy and true love make for an awkward mix in this clunky romance.

Movie Info

A forgotten one-night stand from the 1980s sets the stage for romance 15 years later in director Craig Chester's romantic comedy starring Parker Posey, Craig Chester, Malcolm Gets, and Chris Kattan. Despite the fact that neither Adam (Chester) nor Steve (Gets) recall the one-night stand they shared 15 years ago, the compatible pair form a fast bond when they meet again far-removed from the intoxicating effects of the party scene. When the loving couple realize that their pasts have previously intersected, it's up to their best friends Rhonda (Posey) and Michael (Kattan) to help their pals accept their past and use the foundation of their current relationship to forge ahead into a fulfilling future of kindness and commitment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Clever, liberatingly silly and sweet.

Top Critic

Starting your film with a display of public incontinence isn't the best way to win over the audience.

Adam & Steve mainly goes to prove that indie gay romantic comedies can be just as witless, vulgar and over the top as their straight, major studio counterparts.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Pure amateur-hour stuff: a low-budget, poorly written gay movie that revolves around a crude joke and repeatedly delivers embarrassment when it's supposed to be offering humor.

[Chester] and the goofy Gets make a likable comedy team.

Detroit Free Press
Top Critic

Plays as urban farce, but thanks to first-time director Chester's light touch and affectionally observant eye and ear, it's also a genuinely affecting love story.

Audience Reviews for Adam & Steve

Kind of undecided about whether I really liked it or not. It wasn't horrible, yet not fabulous.

Leigh Ryan

Super Reviewer

While I'm seldom impressed and/or ammused by "gay cinema". We were able to DVR this, so there wasn't even the risk of wasting a valuable "Netflix Queue Position" on a film we felt uncertain about.

Plus...I will watch ANYTHING that lists Parker Posey in the cast. She is always good for a laugh. And seldom disappoints.

While this film is not ground breaking by any means, it was (for the most part) ammusing. With the funniest bits usually involving Ms. Posey. And for the most part, did a fairly good job at presenting some of the complexities of dating/relationships in this day and age (regardless of sexual preferences).

It's almost wore watching this JUST for the first 20 minutes of this film, which are fracking HILARIOUS!!!

I love this film, it's excellently written with good wit. Some scenes and timing were uneven but generally good. A very funny film that pokes fun of pop culture and satirical. I can't stop laughing throughout the film, although I didn't quite like the toilet humour being used in the beginning. Adam and Steve are gonna be a good couple. Everyone did a great job in the film.
