Michael T. Weiss,
Teenage Goth couple Adam and Rhonda are club hopping when Adam spots a dancer he is immediately attracted to. Taking the dancer home, Adam is introduced to drugs by him, but their sexual escapade is interrupted by an embarrassing episode and the dancer leaves quickly. Years later Adam accidentally stabs his dog and brings him to a hospital where he is treated by a psychiatrist who once studied veterinary medicine. The doctor (Steve) and Adam start dating and fall in love. Rhonda, who has stayed Adam's close friend through the years, begins to date Steve's straight roommate at the same time. Months later Steve realizes that Adam was the Goth teenager with whom he had the embarrassing encounter, and breaks off the relationship, afraid that Steve will reject him when he finds out the truth.

I attended the premiere of Adam and Steve as part of Outfest '05. Knowing little to nothing about the movie, other than the fact that Chris Kattan was in it, I went in with an open mind, not knowing quite what to expect. What I got was a lighthearted and extremely funny, gay comedy. While the film did touch on many social mores and taboos, it thankfully made light of them. Trying to find extreme social commentary in a romantic comedy is silly! I'm just happy that a film like this got made. Hopefully some of America has their eyes open enough to except this film as they would any other indie romantic comedy, not minding the fact that indeed, the lead couple is gay!
