Charles Herman-Wurmfeld's comedy remains the best film spawned by "Sex and the City." This sharp-tongued story about emotional curiosity and the politics of passion draws on the words of a dead Austrian poet to muse about modern romance.

The cast is wonderful and the story is commendably free of the sectarian us-versus-them tone of many romantic gay movies.

Smart and sassy, Kissing Jessica Stein is a warm and playful romantic comedy where sexuality plays as large a role as any leading character.
