Critic Reviews for Relax... It's Just Sex

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

The more interesting and likable characters are overshadowed by the more annoying ones.

January 6, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This lifestyle comedy deserves credit for trying to blend together gays, lesbians, and heteros (rare sight in the 1990s), but the writing, direction, and execution are below mediocre.

December 23, 2006 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

As brightly written by Castellaneta and enacted by possibly the best ensemble cast ever assembled in gay film, it's a real gem.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

It's a film that deals intelligently and honestly with its subject matter and has the good sense not to pander or wimp out on its ending.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The film quickly falls apart amid chaotic plotting and stiff acting.

Audience Reviews for Relax... It's Just Sex

Shocking at the time, this film now dates poorly. It unsuccessfully runs across the border of humour and a discussion of truly disheartening subjects.
