The more interesting and likable characters are overshadowed by the more annoying ones.

This lifestyle comedy deserves credit for trying to blend together gays, lesbians, and heteros (rare sight in the 1990s), but the writing, direction, and execution are below mediocre.

As brightly written by Castellaneta and enacted by possibly the best ensemble cast ever assembled in gay film, it's a real gem.

It's a film that deals intelligently and honestly with its subject matter and has the good sense not to pander or wimp out on its ending.

The film quickly falls apart amid chaotic plotting and stiff acting.

Audience Reviews for Relax ... It's Just Sex

Shocking at the time, this film now dates poorly. It unsuccessfully runs across the border of humour and a discussion of truly disheartening subjects.

    1. Vincey Sauris: Wait not that one
    2. Tara Ricotto: No! It's fucking ugly, get rid of it!
    3. Vincey Sauris: I like it, put it back!
    4. Tara Ricotto: Some poor, sick, homeless gay man needs this a lot more than you do. Selfish...
