We gave it a B

Before becoming known as one of Sex and the City‘s swinging Manhattanites, Nixon played another love-lorn New Yorker, an artist torn between a married man (Jon Tenney) and the bisexual lover (Timothy Olyphant) of her best pal Spaz (Dick). Writer Douglas Carter Beane has mastered the emotional fallout of human sexuality — both gay and straight — on film (1995’s To Wong Foo…) and on stage (2006’s Little Dog Laughed), and that thankfully saves Advice From a Caterpillar from emerging as just a racy episode of Three’s Company.
EXTRAS None.
