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

Movie Info

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. When the loving couple realize that their pasts have previously intersected, it's up to their best friends Rhonda (Posey) and Michael (Kattan) to help their pals accept their past and use the foundation of their current relationship to forge ahead into a fulfilling future of kindness and commitment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Adam & Steve

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (19)

Clever, liberatingly silly and sweet.

May 12, 2006 | Rating: 3/4

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

April 21, 2006 | Rating: 2/5

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.

April 19, 2006

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.

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

April 14, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Adam & Steve

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 culture and satirical. I can't stop laughing throughout the film, although I didn't quite like the toilet humour being used in the beginning. Adam and Steve are gonna be a good couple. Everyone did a great job in the film.

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 Malcolm Gets are the most unattractive gay couple I've seen in a movie in a while. There isn't very much chemistry and for characters in their mid-30s, they look tired and closer to 50. The montage towards the beginning and the square dancing are probably the worst scenes. That said, this movie has some really great things on the side to enjoy. When they meet eachother's familys is pretty enjoyable. Parker Posey is amusing as an ex-fat comedian. I actually enjoyed this movie aside from the blah Adam and Steve relationship.

Kind of undecided about whether I really liked it or not. It wasn't horrible, yet not fabulous.
