Overview

Life is sweet for high-school English teacher and sports coach Howard Brackett Kevin Kline; he's still living where he grew up, he has a good relationship with his father Wilford Brimley and mother Debbie Reynolds, he's respected by his community, and he's about to marry Emily Joan Cusack, his fiancée of three years. Fearing she was about to become an old maid, Emily has shed 75 pounds for the upcoming nuptials. But first, the entire town of Greenleaf, IN, settles in to watch the Academy Award telecast, because young stud star Cameron Drake Matt Dillon, who attended Greenleaf High, has been nominated for an Oscar. What's more, he wins, and in his acceptance speech, singles out Howard -- and announces his favorite teacher is gay. Everyone in town is thunderstruck, including Howard himself. The media descend on the town, particularly Peter Malloy Tom Selleck, whose job is hanging by a thread. Even worse, Howard's principal Tom Halliwell Bob Newhart is shaken by the news, and is toying with firing Howard. The beleaguered teacher tries to convince everyone and himself that he's as straight and macho as the next guy; he even tries to follow the rules on a motivational tape, "Be a Man." But his fondness for Barbra Streisand, his theatrical mannerisms, and the fact that he and Emily have yet to make love make everyone's eyebrows stay permanently raised. Meanwhile, out in Hollywood, Cameron, who's really a decent guy, learns about the problems his impulsive comment has caused, and heads back to Greenleaf to see what he can do to help. Howard's mother is fiercely determined to see at least one of her two sons wed -- Walter Gregory Jbara, the other, is a doofus -- and as the wedding date draws nearer and nearer, poor Howard's life flies even farther out of control.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Bill Warren
A very ticklish subject is handled surprisingly delicately by director Frank Oz and writer Paul Rudnick, even though In & Out is a hilarious farce from beginning to end. Homosexuality is depicted as just another way of life (at least one surprising character strolls out of the closet), though its capacity to unnerve the unwary and the prejudiced is not overlooked. Kline, Cusack, Selleck, Reynolds, in fact the entire cast, is simply splendid, exhibiting on-the-nose comedic timing and small, telling character traits. Although there's a very touching moment toward the end, In & Out is a broadly played, broadly written comedy, one of the funniest ever made on this subject.

    One of My Favorites

    Romantic comedies have always been one of my favorite genres. This is one movie that I can watch over and over and over again. All the performances are fabulous -- especially Joan Cusack's (she should have won the Academy Award for best Supporting Actress). You can't help but laugh out loud when, dressed in full wedding garb, she attempts to pick up Tom Selleck in a bar . . . only to find out he's gay, too, just like her fiance Kevin Kline! The music is fun ("Macho Man", "I Will Survive") -- you'll find yourself jumping to your feet. No special effects, no explosions, no "F-bombs". This is a movie that will allow you to lose your worries for 2 hours . . . and laugh!

    Very funny

    This movie lovingly pokes fun of the gay stereotypes without being offensive in any way. Plus there's the added bonus of seeing Kevin Kline dance... and boy can that (straight!) man dance! Reminded me of how wonderfully he danced in Pirates of Penzance. Good all around fun with great performances by the whole cast.

    This is such a great movie. There are some great actors from Debbie Reynolds to Joan Cusack. Joan Cusack is the highlight of the movie with some great lines.
