April 7, 2006
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.
March 31, 2006
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.

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.

Much of Craig Chester's good-hearted love story Adam & Steve is silly and contrived, but the film boasts four engaging actors, including Chester.

Are you looking for a gay romance where no one has to die tragically or suffer a loveless life alone? Then this fluffy indie should hit the spot.

Like the Duran Duran videos it worships, Adam & Steve is so retro it's fresh.

I could have done without the over-the-top cowboy line-dancing finale at which all the boy-loses-boy complications were resolved, but it's hard to begrudge such a charming cast their happy ending.

March 28, 2006
Writer-director Craig Chester's debut is truly enjoyable.
