Making Love salutes the philosophy of different strokes for different folks.

Noble attempt at mainstream gay love story almost works due to Barry Sandler's script.

Nick's Flick Picks

On its own baby-step terms, and despite its moneyed vanilla-himbo vision of gay masculinity and desire, Making Love plays now as a bemusing anachronism but not an insulting or self-inflating one.

This is a three-handkerchief movie, all right, but for the nose. It stinks.

This movie has some of the worst dialogue one can imagine: She: 'What about passion?' He: 'What about support?' She: 'What about betrayal?'

Once the cat is out of the bag, the movie turns rip-roaring awful in an entirely enjoyable way.

Although it was a brave movie at the time, it's got less power than the average soap opera these days.

Unfortunately, Hiller doesn't command the intensity of feeling that might have made it emotionally valid, and he doesn't have the awareness of the cultural forces at work in his film that might have made it intellectually respectable.
