This romantic tale follows a successful doctor who leaves his wife for an equally handsome lover. While it featured gay men in non-stereotypical fashion and stayed glued as two men kissed, the soap opera-ish plot lessens its power.

Reasons to Buy

  1. Although slick and superficial, this gay drama is also an important breakthrough film - it marked the first time Hollywood produced and marketed a gay-themed film for a general audience.
  2. When Making Love was released it caused a furor in theaters as many filmgoers had never seen two men kiss passionately.
  3. We wouldn't kick 1982 Michael Ontkean or Harry Hamlin out of bed - especially if they came as a pair.

In-House Review - Dec 16 2011
Gay critics called it slick and superficial, regular movie critics such as Roger Ebert called it "predictable", but twenty years later, we call it significant.

The film stars Kate Jackson and Michael Ontkean as a "happily married" couple... Read More

"Making Love: (1982), a gay themed classic has finally been released on DVD. When it first came out it was way ahead of its time and happily I say that time has still not fully caught up with it. ... Read More

An excellent film for the time it came out...1982 and while I had to listen to the laughing from the audience, I felt many emotions run through me as the movie took hold of my heart and showed me a different view of gay men and how we deal with each ... Read More

I own this movie and watch it many times. I would like to know that name of the the actor who was 'Zack's' final room mate. He is not listed in the credits. Respond to tvman8570att.net if possible. This film was made in 1982.

I loved this film. An interesting piece of indie filmmaking with shades of a David Lynch movie and the tongue-in-cheek quality of "Desperate Housewives." Fun to look at and more fun to guess the twists-and-turns that it takes. AND, the guys were hot!

I was not yet 30 when I saw this film is 82'.
I was excited about seeing a movie about the lives of two
gay men. a positive movie!
Up until that time most movies with gays as the subject usually ended badly for the gay men. They would... Read More

Review by Pucci

Isn't it amazing? I mean, it's so revealing to see how many of us previously married gay men have responded to MAKING LOVE in such a way that we want to open up about our fears and regrets. I refuse to get detailed about my experience 12 years ago.... Read More

I recall wanting to see 'Making Love' before it came out. I was married at the time; knew my marriage was on the rocks; and I knew why- but just couldn't quite admit it. But enough about me--let's talk about the movie.

I remember going... Read More

I was a (gay) kid when this movie came out. I vaguely remember the controversy but remember vividly wanting to see it. Unfortunately, I couldn't ask my mother to take me. I had to wait many years to see an edited version on channel 5 -- and loved it... Read More

I have always loved this movie. However, has anyone else besides me ever wanted to see the scene that was obviously reduced when Zack (Ontkean) finally confronts Bart (Hamlin)? I have always believed there was a final kiss between the 2 men, and damm... Read More

Word on the street is that Fox will release this early gay gem on DVD in February 2006, at a bargain list price of $14.95. WOW. When I bought my VHS copy in the early 90's, it was already out-of-print, and I paid more for it then any other VHS film... Read More

Review by Nickguy

By: Nickguy
This is not a movie about a teen coming out. This is about a doctor in his late 20's early 30's, grappling with the sudden realization, that for the first time in his life, he is attracted to another man. This is a subject that is very bold and aud... Read More

This movie is one of the first coming out movies that I actually saw. I was amazed how much the audience in the theater reacted when the two leading men kissed. 4 stars for Ms. Jackson's great acting in the movie! She made me cry.

This movie was well acted, romance scenes were realistics. The 3 main actors of the movie were the right one to play the flim with emotions.
I'm looking forward for the DVD version. You must see it.
