Consensus: Gross-out comedy and true love make for an awkward mix in this clunky romance.

Tom Keogh
Seattle Times

Clever, liberatingly silly and sweet.

Tom Long
Detroit News

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.

Upstage Magazine

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.

Starting your film with a display of public incontinence isn't the best way to win over the audience.

John Monaghan
Detroit Free Press

[Chester] and the goofy Gets make a likable comedy team.

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.

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.

Joe Brown
San Francisco Chronicle

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.

It tries for cheap laughs, gets a couple of them, and whizzes the rest of them right down its pant leg.

I kinda hated this movie when I first watched it on dvd but I now find it funny enough to be worth watching. It's silly and badly edited. Crag Chester and… More

Cute but forgettable romantic comedy

I love this film, it's excellently written with good wit. Some scenes and timing were uneven but generally good. A very funny film that pokes fun of pop… More
