Not as bad or offensive as advertised. Tries to have a heart and be lighthearted and yet convey some painful truth in the midst of the usual clichés.
Beware of the penultimate scene between O'Neal and Hurt that somehow is not properly staged, directed and acted. Something did go wrong there but the rest of the film in unpretentious and entertaining thanks to both Ryan O'Neal and John Hurt.

One of the worst pieces of tripe to ever involve the gay community. You'll hate yourself afterwards.

If you love a movie going around in circles and getting nowhere well this is your movie.

Ok film about a macho straight cop who gets partnered with a gay cop and poses as a gay model in order to solve a murder case. Has lots of outdated stereotypes but has some funny situations.

Straight cop O'Neal, paired with gay partner John Hurt, must infiltrate the gay community in order to solve a murder case. This one goes CRUISING for laughs and does well but is filled with dated (and sometimes degrading) stereotypes.

I remember seeing this at the cinema circa 1983. Breakthrough at the time. A little cringeworthy now. Oh I miss the 80's HA!

I never watched it as a child. I knew it had something to do with homosexuality. and my mom said that it was too old for me to get. So perhaps I should get around to watching it lol

Mostly good-natured, and that's about all. The motel owner is good for a few smirks and Hurt does what he can.

This is a terrible byddy cop comedy about two mismatched cops (one straight, one gay) who go undercover as a gay couple to track down a murderer of male models. This is an unfunny, stereotypical, stupid film that is flatly directed, babdly written and has awful performances (John Hurt gives the only decent one). Also the motivation for the murders was terrilbly confusing. You can definitly skip this one.

Total hilarious movie with Ryan O'Neal and John Hurt! One of my favorite movies to laugh at from the 80's!
