A lighthearted look at gay love, and a far more honest and ultimately more touching exploration of the theme than what we got up on Brokeback Mountain.

Chester has a good ear for the snappy one-liner and this, plus his obviously hard-earned knowledge of the quirks in the gay mating game, put over his determinedly black romantic comedy.

It tries for cheap laughs, gets a couple of them, and whizzes the rest of them right down its pant leg.

Chester could have used a major rewrite, or at least some serious editing.

Chester's script is a series of set pieces that all contain exaggerated characters for comic effect. There are numerous one-liners that hit the mark and the central relationship follows its ups and downs along the lines of a conventional romantic comedy w

A clunky doofus, a comedy of meet-cutes and weak jokes.

I can't think of another film in which the embarrassment over a freak bowel movement impedes the course of love and commitment.

Starting your film with a display of public incontinence isn't the best way to win over the audience.

Adam & Steve does distinguish itself from its fellow gay comedies -- in exactly one way: It's possibly the most low-brow of the lot.

Adam & Steve mainly goes to prove that indie gay romantic comedies can be just as witless, vulgar and over the top as their straight, major studio counterparts.

Pure amateur-hour stuff: a low-budget, poorly written gay movie that revolves around a crude joke and repeatedly delivers embarrassment when it's supposed to be offering humor.

[Chester] and the goofy Gets make a likable comedy team.

So awkwardly directed by star Chester that its timing and tone are hopelessly uneven.

Plays as urban farce, but thanks to first-time director Chester's light touch and affectionally observant eye and ear, it's also a genuinely affecting love story.

Material is uneven, but rhythm and pacing keep action moving smartly.
Harvey S. Karten

The sort of production that could be performed on stage by a high-school student group.

Cheap-looking, amateurishly written, and badly acted...

It hits more often than it misses, and the best parts are always the simplest, in which the stars wing it with nothing to go on but their natural chemistry.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

One of the most fundamental rights of man is the right to simply have a frivolous good time. And that's a rainbow flag that Adam & Steve proudly waves high.
