The film is by turns clever and cloying.

Clever anti-evangelical musical comedy.

A clever script and solid acting raises this colourful gay romantic comedy above most films in the genre

There's a certain boilerplate quality to The Big Gay Musical but it's also a lot of fun...

Happily, writer/lyricist Fred M. Caruso's "divine inspiration" found a largely-talented cast, crew and composer and crafted a show-within-a-show songfest that tackles nearly every pink-triangle issue known to queerdom.

Thoroughly silly, occasionally overbearing but ultimately entertaining

Audience Reviews for The Big Gay Musical

High production values for an indie gay film, but really -- not the excellent film the reviews might reflect. I found it emotionally esurient and shallow with acting on par with Missouri community theater. Weren't these guys featured players on "Off Pitch"?

This is a great Gay 101 movie!! lol It gives a newbie and education while following other gays through typical gay scenarios. Campy and fun... I think even somewhat open-minded straight people would laugh a few times. But at the heart, I think most gay people can relate to at least one character or a combination of several characters. Tongue-in-cheek fun!

Touching plot, interesting songs and acting, however, some scenes are just plain silly
