Critic Reviews for House Of Boys

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (3)

  • Against the odds, the indulgent mash-up of sex, old-fashioned corn, romance-novel fantasy and AIDS tragedy is a mostly winning combo.

    Sep 22, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • A gay tragedy in three acts and more than a dozen excellent songs, "House of Boys" conveys an emotional honesty that overrides its dated style.

    Jul 28, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • For all its hanging on the details of the boys' heavily eroticized performances and its graphing of the relationships between the young performers, the film is at once too drawn out and underdeveloped.

  • [A] sweet natured and showy go-go boys drama.

    Jul 30, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The message is everything in this film that one wants to recommend to the young and uneducated in a forgetful age, despite its lack of originality and its dramatic lapses.

    Jul 29, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Heteros get their Crazy, Stupid, Love. this weekend, and I guess gay New Yorkers, fresh off their immensely satisfying we-have-arrived nuptials, get their own Crazy, Stupid, Tragedy. as counterprogramming.
