This movie brought back a lot of memories from that time when we didn't know what caused AIDS or how it was transmitted. Gay men were just dying. I applaud Randal Kleiser for his courage in telling his own story - it was honest and heartfelt. Eric Roberts and Gregory Harrison give outstanding performances. Watch It's My Party, then watch It with Randal Kleiser's commentary, then watch it again. It's beautiful.
