Clever, liberatingly silly and sweet.

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.

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.

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.

Material is uneven, but rhythm and pacing keep action moving smartly.

One of the most fundamental rights of man is the right to simply have a frivolous good time. And that's a rainbow flag that Adam & Steve proudly waves high.

Often charming and funny, though sometimes quite gross.

Co-stars Parker Posey and Chris Kattan offer minor diversions, but the humor never rises to the quality any New Yorker, regardless of sexual orientation, would expect.

Much of Craig Chester's good-hearted love story Adam & Steve is silly and contrived, but the film boasts four engaging actors, including Chester.

For every shtick that works, there are two that don't. Adam & Steve is not the knee-slapper it wants to be, but it's endearing nonetheless.

Adam & Steve strikes an unsatisfying balance between serious romantic texture and outright farce.

There is an underlying story here, and some comic ideas, that in the hands of a better director (or more ruthless editor) could have become an entertaining romantic comedy.

Who said mainstream Hollywood has a monopoly on dumb, gross-out farces? The gay, independent comedy Adam & Steve is as crude and nonsensical as any number of B-list studio equivalents.

I could have done without the over-the-top cowboy line-dancing finale at which all the boy-loses-boy complications were resolved, but it's hard to begrudge such a charming cast their happy ending.

Adam & Steve is a mostly bland, sporadically crude, by-the-numbers romantic comedy about two gay men in love.

Adam & Steve is uneven, but it's a relief to see a gay romance that isn't about ab-perfect 20-year-olds, and which features lovers played by two long out-of-the-closet actors.
