      Amanda Jane Stern Film Inquiry This movie was so abysmally bad that I could barely get through it. Unlike other bad movies on this list that are fun to hate-watch and provide your own commentary track to, this movie is offensively, not funnily, bad. Mar 24, 2020 Full Review Luke Y. Thompson L.A. Weekly Some years ago, Oy Vey! might have seemed radical in its casual presentation; nowadays, are we really supposed to believe that one gay couple adopting a child would cause mass protests on the streets of New York?

      robert p It's a little dated but it's still a fun movie!!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A wonderful film that had me both laughing and crying and feeling everything in between. Definitely worth a watch! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is highly predictable but I laughed so hard at certain scenes. Lanie is the real reason to see this movie! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Good intentions don't overcome bad writing and directing. Unbelievable, over the top stereotypes galore spouting cliques and fretting over issues that might have seemed ground-breaking in the 80's but not today. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny yet predictable movie. Kind of campy.. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Was kinda of funny at the beginning, but became 'nudnik' towards the end. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
