I remember hearing about this film long before it came out. Living in asmall eastern Ontario town in Canada in 1982 (a town with an army base noless) I thought that as much as I wanted to, my chances of seeing thisfilmwere pretty slim unless I could somehow make it to a big city. Finally, Ilucked ...
A happily married doctor (Michael Ontkean) realizes he has sexualfeelings about men. One day he meets openly gay Bart (Harry Hamlin) andfalls in love. Meanwhile his wife Claire (Kate Jackson) can'tunderstand why her husband is suddenly so cold and distant.I saw this twice in a theatre back in 1982. ...
This is a beautiful story that was years ahead of its time. It dealswith a young doctor who realizes that he is gay and the consequences ithas on his marriage and his life. As the lead character begins toexplore his new sexual identity, he gets involved with a commitmentphobic writer and the movie e...
MAKING LOVE was dismissed as a rather routine melodrama despite its"controversial" subject. This is a pity, for this film is years ahead ofits time in the frank and non-judgmental approach it takes to same-sexlove.The on-screen kiss between Michael Ontkean and Harry Hamlin was in someways the "shot...
Saw this movie in 1982, and remember the gasps of the audience beforehalfthe theater left.Saw it again 4/24/2001 on Fox Movie, and was amazed at how relevent thismovie still is, and how it anticpated the sensitivity which we now takeforgranted in the portrayal of homoerotic themes.My hats off to Ba...
I love how people so eagerly show their prejudice by calling movieslike this "gay propaganda." If anything, these folks do us a favor byexposing themselves so that those of us with brains in our heads cansteer clear of them.If the purpose of this movie was to send a message, then that messagewas obv...
I don't understand the number of reviews that refer to this movie as being"ahead of its time." The time was clearly right for this movie. By 1980the gay and lesbian community had finally become fed up with moviesportrayal of homosexuals as either the predatory lesbian or the flamboyantfaggot who b...
The picture frequently gets a bad rap for being soap-opera-ish, timid, toowhite, too pat, etc. It remains a groundbreaker, for up to that time (1982),gays were either comedic relief, self-pitying ("Boys In the Band" - 1970),psycho-killers, or victims (includes "Philadelphia" - 1993). Released by ama...
I believe that given this film was made in 1982, in the early stages oftheAIDS epidemic, it IS groundbreaking.For me, it was the film that helped a struggling 10 grader come to termswith his sexuality. Therefore, I recommend this film to anyone who wantstoknow what it is like to admit to yourself th...
"Making Love" is an engrossing and wellacted romantic drama on a mature subject.Its characters and situations are easilyunderstood, and one feels for theirmarital problems and their steps towardsolutions. An unusually good looking casthas been assembled, and all play theirparts convincingly. The mu...
The one good thing you can say about this film is that it has a goodheart. It's honest and well intentioned. It was groundbreaking in 1981in that it was released from a major movie studio, 20th Century Fox,and portrayed gay characters and homosexuality in a positive light,something that had not been...
When released 24 years ago, critics dismissed this as a "mawkishsoaper" and it was shunned at the box office due to its "controversial"subject matter. In reality, it is a well scripted, well acted, and morethan competently directed film. Quite the opposite of a melodrama,Jackson, Ontkean, and Hamlin...
I saw this in its first limited release, in New York City with a groupof gay friends, in February of 1982, on a Saturday night. The picturehad been out for about a week, and everyone, I thought, knew what itwas about. We saw it in a major East Side theater, the only one whereit was being shown as I ...
This movie was the first "gay themed" movie I had ever seen back in the80's. I couldn't quit watching it. Being raised in a small conservativetown, I was relieved to see a movie that struck a chord with me.In response to another reviewer, just because a movie has a gay theme thatmakes it propaganda?...
I saw this movie for the first time last night and have been readingthe comments here with some interest. Having read in the past that itwas nothing more than a soap opera, to my great surprise I found themovie to be subtle and very stylish with fine performances andproduction values. It seems to me...
Although the film "Making Love"(1982) was done over 20 years ago, I feltthan and still feel today that it delivers one of the best and strongestmessages about gays and lesbians in our society; a message thatunfortunately more people need to 'get', even today.The film explores not only the idea of a...
I saw this when it first came out. I was 20. I had never seen a filmaboutgay men before - except Boys in the Band - on late nite TV. That filmscared me. This one made me feel good and positive about myself. It iswarm and sad and happy and realistic. (well if we were all successful LAtyes, anyw...
1982 was my coming out year.I was 19...I had just embarked on my firstgay relationship and it was a voyage of discovery living in London atthat time. I used to frequent the Black Cap in Camden town..still a gaypub..and I remember it was abuzz with anticipation when this film cameout. EVERYBODY talke...
I first saw this movie when I was 17. Back then I didn't know why I likedit so much. I watched it again recently and now I know, but the reason isdifferent. I liked it back then because it was the only gay movie I knewabout. When I think about the many gay movies I've seen since then,MakingLove ...
This was the most impressive movie I had ever seen in my lifetime. As ayoung teenager, I fell in love with a gay man. I did not know he wasgay until later (4yrs) into our 'fun' relationship. After all was saidand done, I will still love him till I die. I eventually married astraight man. When I was ...
"Making Love" may not be the greatest film about Homosexuality but itmay be the most important. Before Ennis and Jack went camping, Zach metBart. This is 1982; the beginning of the Reagan Era and was before theAIDS epidemic exploded. For a film about a Gay man who is not a victimor victimizer it is ...
"Making Love" was released to the theaters when I was in the 12thgrade. Growing up in the south in a very fundamental Christian churchwas not easy. This movie not only confirmed my homosexuality but showedme that real, normal people were gay and that I too could have awonderful life as a gay man and...
Before Ennis and Jack discovered their true sexual selves on BrokebackMountain, Making Love opened up a lot of eyes in presenting the gaymale culture right before the beginning of the AIDs plague. We learnedthat gay males indeed come in all shapes and sizes and libidos.I have to say I really identif...
Honestly, now, after finally having seen it, I don't understand thenegative comments I heard about this movie at all. Some of the comments I heard beforehand: "This movie is boring andplayed safe". No, it isn't and it doesn't, in my opinion. Showing a male to male kissin that fashion and showing the...
Although Zach is a doctor and Claire is a television-programmingexecutive, the young, attractive, and successful couple are prepared tobudget so they can afford their sprawling dream house. The McMansion isspectacular, their careers are going up hill, and they are evidently inlove, both physically a...
