Gross-out comedy and true love make for an awkward mix in this clunky romance.

Clever, liberatingly silly and sweet.
Starting your film with a display of public incontinence isn't the best way to win over the audience.
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.
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.
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 love this film, it's excellently written with good wit. Some scenes and timing were uneven but generally good. A very funny film that pokes fun of pop culture and satirical. I can't stop laughing throughout the film, although I didn't quite like the toilet humour being used in the beginning. Adam and Steve are gonna be a good couple. Everyone did a great job in the film.
I kinda hated this movie when I first watched it on dvd but I now find it funny enough to be worth watching. It's silly and badly edited. Crag Chester and Malcolm Gets are the most unattractive gay couple I've seen in a movie in a while. There isn't very much chemistry and for characters in their mid-30s, they look tired and closer to 50. The montage towards the beginning and the square dancing are probably the worst scenes.
That said, this movie has some really great things on the side to enjoy. When they meet eachother's familys is pretty enjoyable. Parker Posey is amusing as an ex-fat comedian. I actually enjoyed this movie aside from the blah Adam and Steve relationship.
Kind of undecided about whether I really liked it or not. It wasn't horrible, yet not fabulous.
While I'm seldom impressed and/or ammused by "gay cinema". We were able to DVR this, so there wasn't even the risk of wasting a valuable "Netflix Queue Position" on a film we felt uncertain about.
Plus...I will watch ANYTHING that lists Parker Posey in the cast. She is always good for a laugh. And seldom disappoints.
While this film is not ground breaking by any means, it was (for the most part) ammusing. With the funniest bits usually involving Ms. Posey. And for the most part, did a fairly good job at presenting some of the complexities of dating/relationships in this day and age (regardless of sexual preferences).
It's almost wore watching this JUST for the first 20 minutes of this film, which are fracking HILARIOUS!!!
