Good movie, if not great. Kevin Kline carrys the movie. It could have been much better. Frank Oz's other movies have more edge, this lacked that.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
When a young actor (Dillon) wins an Oscar, he thanks his small-town high school teacher--who, he says, is gay. The popular teacher, days away from his wedding, denies this emphatically but still has to deal with the tumult and media frenzy that erupts. Very funny script by Paul Rudnick, played to a fare-thee-well by an expert cast. Enjoyable cameos by Whoopi Goldberg and Glenn Close at the mock Oscar ceremony.
