"Is everybody gay? Is this the twilight zone?"

Oh boy! what a movie, it's so funny-silly-lame-awesome-cliched type movie that you enjoy it even when you are in the end scene and at the graduation ceremony and you go wth? and you still laugh you head off.

So it's a story which is inspired by Tom Hanks oscar speech where he thanks two gay guys who helped him in the b... read more

Man, it’s hard to remember that there was a time when the very existence of a movie like In & Out, with it’s message of tolerance for homosexuality, was some kind of radical idea. Despite falling in line with the general treatment of gay men as sweet, supportive eunuchs, In & Out gained attention for even broaching the subject. Oh, and there’s a blink-and-miss-it kiss between Kevin Kline and... read more

Popular and about-to-be-married high school teacher Kevin Kline is "outed" by a former student during an Academy Award acceptance speech, turning his small Indiana town into a center of national attention. Now Kline is trying to convince everyone--from his parents and fiancee Joan Cusack to his students and tabloid TV reporter Tom Selleck--that he's straight...but is he? Matt Dillon, Bob Newhart and Debbie Reynolds also star in director Frank Oz and scripter Paul Rudnick's riotous "sexual identity crisis" comedy.

"First viewing - Jan. 8th At the time In & Out came out (heh) I had no interest in it. But over the years I haven't heard too many people speak up against it, so I figured I'd give it a look. And it's fine. Tough to suspend my disbelief from time to time, but since it's a comedy I rolled along with it the best I could. It's definitely not essential, but I enjoyed some aspects of it (the reading of the Oscar nominees for Best Actor was hysterical) and have satisfied my curiosity so I won't need t"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- May 2017 (33 movies items)

" Starz- 1hr. 30min. First Viewing In & Out is a fairly fun movie, despite playing into many of the gay stereotypes that it's trying to upend. It falls more in line with gay entertainment like Will & Grace; it touches on some issues, but only grazes the surface. Much of the film's success stems from an exceptional cast that brings some humanity to these caricatures. Not great, but decent enough. "
