Audience Reviews for Alive and Kicking

It was good. I might watch it again if it was on tv, but no rent it. Its something good to watch one day.

The film neatly covers every gay-drama cliche (ballet, distasteful vanity, random dancing, AIDS angst, creepy sex scenes) in the space of 100 painful minutes.
