Time Out says

Slight but very likeable urban fairytale about the joys and limitations of wish-fulfilment fantasies. A mildly sappy composer (he aspires to write a Broadway hit) is cruised on the subway by the man of his dreams (a go-go boy with intellectual credentials), but can't find any place to take him to bed. The all-night quest takes them through the usual gallery of After Hours types, headed by a malicious drag queen, and a series of sitcom-style misunderstandings; it's no surprise that first time director Fall has a background in off-off-Broadway theatre. But the casting is spot-on (especially Pitoc as the brainy, charming sex object) and much of the dialogue is real funny.
