Reel Film Reviews
April 4, 2015 often painfully broad comedy that's rarely as entertaining (or as funny) as one might've anticipated.

Actually, the funniest parts of the movie are excerpts from the film that Cameron is originally nominated for.

The clever screenwriter Paul Rudnick cooks up a solid script that's both wildly funny and gently satirical.

In & Out is the screwball Philadelphia, a movie that contorts itself in order to indulge and then whitewash the core audience's perceived homophobia.

A plain ol' enjoyable time at the movies.

Basically a one-joke farce that plays around with a once-delicate subject that by now is a mainstay even on TV.

Paul Rudnick has written scenes that will go down as classics.

The Hollywood stuff at the beginning with Glenn Close as an Oscar presenter and Matt Dillon as a puffed-up star on the rise is as funny and as nasty as anything in Libby Gelman-Waxner's columns.

Oz wants it both ways, though, and can't resist hammering home the message with a prolonged Spartacus-style climax quite as ludicrous as the Oscar winning film-within-the-film.

The film was directed by Frank Oz, who's not the edgiest of filmmakers but still put together a fine little film, well made and entertaining.

Kline delivers an intriguing, fence-straddling performance.

There's not a lot of plot momentum and the denouement is a bit simplistic and patronizing, but this light-hearted fare has enough fun moments and witty social-commentary barbs to make it worthwhile.

Não é um filme excepcional, mas consegue fazer rir.
