A Wonderful film
27 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This starts off with Tony as a lonely gentleman who has the same routine every single day. Getting some cold cuts and potato salad and eating alone in his little flat every single night. Never does it say anywhere that this is a homosexual individual. I never got that impression. In any case he meets a young lady and has her move in with him after he becomes very attached to her. She is quite young and full of energy and brings life into his household. I think....It has been awhile since this was on TV, that she becomes pregnant and he wants her to keep the baby and raise it in his place. In time she meets someone and has to say goodbye and his life goes back to the same old routine again. It was a very sad movie I thought. The spin off TV show dealt gingerly with his "homosexuality" in one episode. The show was cute although I wanted to hit the kid who sang the "We're friends forever!!" song....
