A forgotten one-night stand from the 1980s sets the stage for romance 15 years later in director Craig Chester's romantic comedy starring Parker Posey, Craig Chester, Malcolm Gets, and Chris Kattan. Despite the fact that neither Adam (Chester) nor Steve (Gets) recall the one-night stand they shared 15 years ago, the compatible pair form a fast bond when they meet again far-removed from the intoxicating effects of the party scene.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Clever, liberatingly silly and sweet."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"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."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"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."
‑ Kam Williams, Upstage Magazine
"Chester could have used a major rewrite, or at least some serious editing."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"I can't think of another film in which the embarrassment over a freak bowel movement impedes the course of love and commitment."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Starting your film with a display of public incontinence isn't the best way to win over the audience."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"[Chester] and the goofy Gets make a likable comedy team."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"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."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"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"
‑ Ted Murphy, Murphy's Movie Reviews
"Adam & Steve does distinguish itself from its fellow gay comedies -- in exactly one way: It's possibly the most low-brow of the lot."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"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."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"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."
‑ Joe Brown, San Francisco Chronicle
"It tries for cheap laughs, gets a couple of them, and whizzes the rest of them right down its pant leg."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"A clunky doofus, a comedy of meet-cutes and weak jokes."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
"So awkwardly directed by star Chester that its timing and tone are hopelessly uneven."
‑ Kim Morgan,
