It's hard to remember today the feeling of panic in the air about HIV and the AIDS virus that was endemic when this movie was made. But perhaps watching this movie and trying to get a sense of that fear again would be good for today's generation, who have been lulled into complacency and are again participating in high risk activities that could lead to a new surge in the disease.
That said, the real reason to watch this movie is Patrick Stewart as a swishy interior designer. If everything else in this movie failed (which it doesn't), his character alone would still make it worth watching.

Enthusiastic If Not Gay

(4 out of 5 stars)
"The professional reviewer missed the main point of Jeffrey's dilemma. He's not so afraid of getting AIDS; he's afraid of falling in love with a man who then dies of it. Most people figure a 50% chance of dying before their spouse; but taking on a person with a known, fatal disease throws those odds way out of kilter and creates a desperate, poignant situation.
Steve Weber is no gayer than George Bush but he certainly is an enthusiastic kisser. This was the first film I saw Michael Weiss in and he totally had me convinced he was gay. I knew Patrick Stewart isn't, but his performance is dead on.
Overall, a very funny movie with a big, big heart."
Great movie - Very Funny and Romantic too!

"I laughed at some of the negative reviews posted on here for this movie. This is a Paul Rudnik movie - He wrote "In & Out" "Adams Family Values" etc - this is not supposed to be "Longtime Companion" kids!He tackles these topics from a "Neil Simon" point of view. Meaning wisecracks leading to the serious subjects. This is a COMEDY first and second tackles the issues of intimacy in the age of AIDS. The performances are wonderful. Especially Patrick Stewart who should have been nominated for an Oscar. Steven Weber is adorable and Michal T Weiss is so hot he almost melts the film.I highly recommend this very funny movie with a point. Plus I like romantic movies about ADULT gay men. You hardly see them. It's always a coming out story about young boys. That was done in an excellent way with 'beautiful thing' but move on gay filmmakers. Adult men deserve their love stories too."
Brilliant, hilarious, witty - MUST SEE

"This offbeat comedy about the trials of life as a single gay man will have you laughing until it hurts, whether or not you're part of the gay scene. Side-splitting daydream sequences in Jeffrey's mind give the entire thing a surreal feel, and Patrick Steward (Star Trek TNG's Captain Picard) as a lisping, leopard-skin-clad interior decorator is a sight that nobody should miss. Cleverly written, well choreographed, fast-paced, light-hearted, and very, very, VERY funny. Homofiles and homophobes alike should watch this movie."
