To hear someone say that they just saw a great musical comedy about AIDS might sound like the rock bottom of taste, but this adorable Canadian film is actually charming, enjoyable, and politically correct. Patient Zero is now a spirit wandering the baths of Toronto in search of some meaning to the epidemic that has taken away his life and the lives of so many others. While examining all aspects of gay culture and AIDS culture from 1981 to the present, he meets an anthropologist and falls in love with him. The way the story plays out is pretty shallow, but the musical numbers are fun and the songs are bouncy and memorable.
