This tale of a small-town high school teacher (Kevin Kline) whose life is turned upside down when he's declared gay by a former student-turned-star (Matt Dillon) constitutes Hollywood's own coming-out comedy about homosexuality. It's therefore an appropriately bland comedy that ends up reinforcing, not puncturing, gay stereotypes, and doesn't get enough out of a cast which includes Joan Cusack, Tom Selleck, Debbie Reynolds and Bob Newhart. Kline still manages to rise above the plodding humor, esp. in his showstopping dance scenes; and Selleck is terrifically funny as the sleazy, sardonic, faintly Mephistophelean tabloid reporter who dogs his footsteps.
