In & Out

Newcity Chicago

DIRECTED BY: Frank Oz

REVIEWED: 10-27-97

A one-joke premise -- what happens when movie star Matt Dillon accidentally outs one of his Indiana high school teachers while accepting an Oscar? -- is enlivened by screenwriter Paul Rudnick's deft gagwriting. While the film seems slight at even a modest 90 minutes, there are many, many smart laughs. Kevin Kline's the teacher; Joan Cusack his unknowing, chaste fiance; and Tom Selleck is on hand as a pushy, openly gay TV-tabloid reporter looking for the story -- or kiss -- of his life.
