While at first these changes bring major disasters (Eddie's parents panic at the news, Paul ruins a one-night stand), a great night of satire, costumes, singing, and dancing gives everyone the confidence to just be themselves. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

    This is a great Gay 101 movie!! lol It gives a newbie and education while following other gays through typical gay scenarios. Campy and fun... I think even somewhat open-minded straight people would laugh a few times. But at the heart, I think most gay people can relate to at... read more least one character or a combination of several characters. Tongue-in-cheek fun!

    Touching plot, interesting songs and acting, however, some scenes are just plain silly

    High production values for an indie gay film, but really -- not the excellent film the reviews might reflect. I found it emotionally esurient and shallow with acting on par with Missouri community theater. Weren't these guys featured players on "Off Pitch"?

    I guess I was in a rather sappy movie, but this was my second time watching the film and it had me laughing at the layers of gay cultural references and tearing up over the more poignant scenes in the film. I really enjoyed Daniel Robinson (Paul/Adam) and Joey Dudding (Eddie/Stev... read moree), but the entire ensemble was really stellar. I wish they had done more to work through the subplot of the HIV+ character. And, though, the play clearly drew a line in the sand that was (a) there's a Christian God and He loves you, and (b) God loves homosexuality, (both I disagree with on varying levels of philosophical and logical premises) I came away feeling great that it wasn't just another gay film without a proper, progressive message and there was great casting, directing, production, and acting throughout. I'll definitely watch this again.

    Dull and predictable story with cardboard cutout characters and offensive, negative stereotypes. Hard to believe I like other films from Casper so much. This one seems like the work of an entirely different person. Rated half a star for Corrigan's beauty.

    OMG, hot guys! Somewhat lame production, but still a totally cute movie. Oh, and not to mention funny.

There's a certain boilerplate quality to The Big Gay Musical but it's also a lot of fun... Full Review

Happily, writer/lyricist Fred M. Caruso's "divine inspiration" found a largely-talented cast, crew and composer and crafted a show-within-a-show songfest that tackles nearly every pink-triangle issue ... Full Review
