Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sweet and funny take on the crossed-wire romantic couplings of A Midsummer Night's Dream."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"A less-than-satisfying cinematic meal."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Like a Will & Grace episode gone horribly wrong."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"... a feature-length sitcom with gay double entendres."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Everything you wished Will & Grace would be."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
"Rarely more than sophomoric."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"You almost want a sequel just to see how hot and heavy it gets when all the characters are finally matched up with their appropriate partners."
‑ Don Willmott,
"It's just too bad it's not still stuck in a plain brown wrapper."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"While the filmmaker's ambition to give queer cinema a dopey sex comedy of its own is laudable, the results, unfortunately, fail on a base level. It just isn't very funny."
‑ Andrew Wright, The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
"A tasteless comedy that nevertheless leaves a nasty flavor on the tongue."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's cute enough but fails to deliver."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"It's too formulaic, much too obvious and features some of the most unpleasant characters in recent film history."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"The way these characters are written tells us nothing about them and everything about the guy who wrote and directed this movie, whose name is Q. Allen Brocka and who may be the only person who will actually find it amusing."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"This low-budget college-campus farce succeeds in being occasionally playful but is mostly annoying."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
