San Francisco Chronicle

A genuinely affecting love story with something to say about such contemporary obstacles to affection as weird families, hot exes, addictions, anonymous hookups, homophobia, irony, gay two-stepping -- and the difficulty of connecting no matter what gender you go for.

Austin Chronicle

By Marrit Ingman
It's the most honest, refreshing comedy about love – gay, straight, or both – I've seen in many moons, and at the end everyone's problems are solved by a country-western dance battle with drag doyenne Jackie Beat on the mic.

TV Guide

By Ken Fox
It hits more often than it misses, and the best parts are always the simplest, in which the stars wing it with nothing to go on but their natural chemistry.

By Sean Axmaker
It wobbles between a conventionally quirky lighthearted goof and an oddball farce in which character is sacrificed for sight gags.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Any professional film editor watching this movie is going to suffer through one moment after another that begs to be ripped from the film and cut up into ukulele picks. Never mind the film editor: A lot of audiences, with all the best will in the world, are going to feel the same way.

Not the knee-slapper it wants to be, but it's endearing nonetheless.

Chicago Tribune

By Allison Benedikt
A mostly bland, sporadically crude, by-the-numbers romantic comedy about two gay men in love.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Frank Scheck
Ultimately 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.
