Straight Jacket (2004)
Critic Consensus: Straight Jacket succeeds in its moments of lighthearted comedy, but ultimately collapses under the weight of its serious -- and clumsily imparted -- messages.

Critic Reviews for Straight Jacket
It's a shame, then, that Straight-Jacket turns dour and melodramatic ... The light-hearted fun seeps out of the movie, replaced by trite interludes of coming-out angst, McCarthy-era persecution and even gay-bashing.
It has verve, color and energy, but there's something fundamentally bogus about it, and whenever it takes a turn into seriousness, entire moments fall apart.
Day's pyrotechnic dialogue and instinctive comic timing make Straight-Jacket a delight.
A fey and frisky farce with a fabulous fashion sense.
Wastes its promising premise with a wavering tone that veers uneasily between camp humor and, pardon the expression, straightness.
Audience Reviews for Straight Jacket
Very fun, campy film with some great moments and lead actors that throw themselves into the film with gusto and a lot of self-deprecating humour. The timing wasn't always perfect and the hilarity was unfortunately not sustained throughout the whole movie. But overall an entertaining, well-meaning comedy with just a pinch of truth.
