Basically a one-joke farce that plays around with a once-delicate subject that by now is a mainstay even on TV.

Actually, the funniest parts of the movie are excerpts from the film that Cameron is originally nominated for.

...an often painfully broad comedy that's rarely as entertaining (or as funny) as one might've anticipated.

In & Out is the screwball Philadelphia, a movie that contorts itself in order to indulge and then whitewash the core audience's perceived homophobia.

Overall, it isn't bad, but it is disappointing.

Like a senior citizen with a nose-ring, 'In & Out' wears its hipness rather uncomfortably.

Oz wants it both ways, though, and can't resist hammering home the message with a prolonged Spartacus-style climax quite as ludicrous as the Oscar winning film-within-the-film.

From the very first scene, you know that In and Out has struck a rich satirical vein.

The clever screenwriter Paul Rudnick cooks up a solid script that's both wildly funny and gently satirical.
