Critic Reviews for House Of Boys

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (4)

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

    September 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.

    July 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.

  • 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.

    July 26, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Udo Kier shows up in a supporting role and gives everything a spirited turn.

    September 11, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4.0 | Full Review…
  • [A] sweet natured and showy go-go boys drama.
