Storyline

Violet, a fiesty 15 year-old who prefers the nickname "Scooter" , decides to run away from her boring life in a small town and goes to visit with the father she has never seen. She believes he lives in the city with his new wife, but in fact he is in a gay relationship with his long-time lover. This inevitably leads to changes and readjustments all round as dad gets to know, reluctantly, the daughter he never wanted. Written by Patrick Dominick <p-dominick@adfa.oz.au>

Australia's Answer to La Cage au Folle?
2 August 2001 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Two out and proud gay men are `living in sin in Sidney' and have been for 7 years. Alec (Graham Harvey) is the owner of a gym and Pete (David Franklin) is an attorney. When Alec's 15-year-old daughter Scooter (Rebecca Smart) shows up after running away from her small town life and her mother's constant stream of boyfriends, Alec and Pete's well ordered life is thrown into chaos.

The boys are faced with the problem of two 40ish gay men adjusting to the mess left in the wake of an adolescent girl. The daughter is faced with sorting out her romantic feelings amid the good-looking and unavailable men who are more attracted to her dad than to her. And we are faced with a refreshing, upbeat look at some of the newer problems of `modern family life'.

Best line in the movie.

Daughter: Fathers don't kiss their daughter's boyfriends in the street.

Daughter's Boyfriend: Not often. enough.
