Any humanity in the script is diluted to the point of nonexistence by Schumacher's refusal to allow any of his characters to develop beyond the stereotype stage.

Oh. My. God. Who came up with the idea for this piece of junk?

De Niro and Hoffman deliver the goods, but they are lost within a cockamamie, violent subplot that pulls down everything.

...a well-balance work that captures the often jaw dropping performances by the dancers.

So awful it just might put an end to Hollywood's hypocritical infatuation with men in drag as symbols of its own supposedly liberated sexual attitudes.

Seedy, grimy and unsightly as hell, even as it aspires to find the inner diva in us all, "Flawless" is what happens when a filmmaker has no sense of naturalism, no sense of realism and no real natural sense.

Proves that neither a respected great like Robert De Niro or an up-and-comer like Philip Seymour Hoffman can save a film as foolish and misguided as this one.

Joel Schumacher has served up a big, steamy Butterball with all the trimmings.

You need a pair of huge, hairy ones to make a picture this bad and call it "Flawless."

It's a rough, yet playful film with endearing moments, where both hetero's and gays are cherished and ribbed.

Loquacious. Confounding. Asymmetrical. Never-ending. Cliched. Redundant. Logorrheic. Unfunny. Meandering. Blase. And frankly, downright boring, too...

There are a lot of words that could be used to describe filmmaker Joel Schumacher's latest effort, but "Flawless" certainly wouldn't be one of them.

Schumacher sets gay screen images back about three decades with this noisy inanity.
William Arnold
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
January 1, 2000
There's a nice moment or two, and the two central performances are OK, but it's grindingly predictable, and, for all its good intentions and celebration of diversity, it finally just rings false as a human drama.
