Movie Review

"In and Out" is a problematic comedy about the outing of a gay teacher. It takes a serious subject and makes a farce filled with gay cliches and silliness.
Kevin Kline plays Howard Brackett, a well loved english teacher and coach who is labeled as gay by a former student (Matt Dillon) when he thanks Howard in his Oscar acceptance speech. Joan Cusack is wonderful as Howard's flabbergasted fiance, Debbie Reynolds has a grand time as Howard's wedding obsessed mother and Tom Selleck plays a gay television reporter who follows Howard around to get his story.

(Dialog w/Tom Selleck goes here)



"In and Out" gets a B. It has some delightful moments but there is so much more that could have been done with the concept. cutopen
