Canned theater.

In 1975, the idea of a straight man tying up a gay burglar was exotic, darkly humorous and sexually charged. In director/star Steve Guttenberg's new film version, it comes off as no big deal.

[The Boys in the Band] is much wittier and funnier than the comparatively frantic and frenzied shouting matches devised by Messrs. Guttenberg, Korn and Kirkwood.
January 23, 2003
Remains too much a filmed play.

Guttenberg is a capable director; his framing is crisp, his pacing brisk, his eye alert to telling detail.
January 21, 2003
Guttenberg ... obviously meant this as a major stretch, and does his best acting work since his breakthrough in Diner.
January 20, 2003
A two-character roundelay whose modicum of enjoyment depends largely on your own personal appetite for social commentary transparently dressed up as assertively quirky entertainment.

Guttenberg's Jimmy is such a natural extension of the actor himself, which adds a dimension the original playwright never could have imagined.

It's another world now, which is why Kirkwood's play, adapted to the screen by actor Steve Guttenberg, feels so moldy and out of date.

It is, inevitably, an actorly exercise -- not off-puttingly so, perhaps, but at no time do we have a sense that we've transcended the stage. Or, for that matter, 1970.

The performances are solid, but as a screenwriter, Guttenberg can't make the situation seem like more than a theatrical construct in a contemporary setting.

Dominated by an unshaven Guttenberg mugging, ranting, screaming and hurling himself around the luxurious loft set we're meant to believe is a squalid dump that serves as a nagging reminder to Jimmy of his inadequacies.

The story doesn't have anywhere interesting to go once Kate, appropriately humiliated, slinks away.

It's nicely acted by the small cast.
January 10, 2003
The film's completely declawed of energy and comedy.

While [Guttenberg's] tenacity is undeniable, he would have been wiser to let sleeping cats lie.
