"Partners
I saw this move when it was first released in cinemas in the early 1980s. It was funny then and its humour is just as funny now. Many people lampoon it because it supposedly makes fun of gay men. In reality all it is doing is using a stereotype and making a point. A wonderful movie I am glad I purchased because now I can watch it over and over again and enjoy its humour and how it brings a smile and laugh to my face."
A Partner Crime Thriller with Wit and a Twist

"This is a great thriller/comedy from the man who brought you "La Cage Aux Folles." John Hurt is wondrously understated and Ryan O'Neal has never been better or more sincere. I'm so glad it's on DVD."

"This one is a real sleeper. If you have not seen Partners you have missed out on some great entertainment. John Hurt is as usual and shows he is unsurpassed with his acting ability. You really feel the sense of emotion he shares on screen. Ryan O'Neal should count this as one of his best performances although I read somewhere where he was embarrassed to make this film. He should boast about the way his body looked best in this film as compared to his other films. This movie is a classic. I would recommend to anyone. You won't be disappointed."
Pretty good movie..... gay or straight........

"It's a cute movie, though not as humorous as I'd hoped..... it was different.... not a comedy about gays. Ryan and John both develop their characters well and show some 'real' emotions that can develop within couples. It seems to have been a more subtle intro to the gay community, not portraying them as total lunatics (i.e. Robin Williams, in Birdcage). The 'bad guy' is a horrible actor..... he came off too 'slapstick', but it didn't spoil the movie for me. I enjoyed the movie, but only once... gave it to a friend who had recommended it to me."
