In this surprising, buoyant comedy, a young, gay actor/waiter finds "Mr. Right" after becoming celibate in the age of AIDS. Struggling with the notion of commitment after discovering his perfect man is HIV-positive, he relies on his best friend (Patrick Stewart as an interior decorator), a self-absorbed New Age evangelist, and a hilariously lascivious priest to help him find the way. Adapted from Paul Rudnick's Obie award-winning play.
When the condom breaks in the middle of sex, the terrified Jeffrey concludes that it's high time to protect himself from AIDS by swearing off sex for good. However, the minute he makes this decision, he walks into the gym and spies the beautiful Steve, pumping iron and ready for an intimate encounter. And every time the newly celibate Jeffrey rejects Steve's provocative advances, it becomes a little harder to say no. Soon, Jeffrey realizes that Steve is the man of his dreams... until he finds out that his beloved is HIV positive.
