Storyline

Children and parents. In New York City, Stephen and Danny live well: they're smooth, cool, in love, and good at what they do. Stephen's Midwestern parents pay them a surprise visit. Meanwhile, Jenny and Damon tell their parents they are engaged: Matt's parents, Midwestern paramilitary fanatics, take it as a sign to gather their group to invade New York. Jenny's father is the local Mob boss who employs Stephen and Danny as enforcers. He's unhappy that Jenny is marrying someone who is neither Sicilian nor Catholic. Stephen's parents know he's gay, they just don't know what his job is. Here come the parents; will the children survive? All roads lead to the engagement party. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Make friends with this movie, which is fun for the whole family.
26 November 2003 | by (Indianapolis, IN) – See all my reviews

Fun Fun Fun!

The first time you watch it, you'll enjoy the punchlines and situations

The second time you'll appreciate the clever story and plot.

And this is one "gay" movie you really can take the grandparents and kids to.

Most of the performances are tip-top, but there are a couple of wooden actors and couple of actors who are OVER the top. Still, even though it's not the most polished movie you'll see, it may be one of the most fun.
