Storyline

Social Worker Gloria finds brothers T.J. and Brian, once again, abandoned by their alcoholic mother. With nowhere else to turn, she delivers them to a gay couple (Phil and Eric) on a waiting list to adopt an infant. While 8-year-old Brain is ready to give this new situation a go, 12-year-old T.J. has already been hardened by past rejections to give ANY situation a go. Both boys must either accept this situation or be split up in group homes. After several calls, T.J. gets his drunken mother, Cat, to drop by, and she ends up staying as well. This puts a strain on the gay men's relationship, forcing one to leave while the other remains to fix the problems with the boys and their mother. Written by statmanjeff

A serious subject done fun!
19 July 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

The true test of a film is whether or not it still affects you a couple of days after you see it. "Get Your Stuff" is still affecting me. The film was done, obviously, with very little money and the end result was that I felt for and related to these characters more than those I saw in The Perfect Storm. What does that tell you about spending a great deal or very little to make a film? The film never lagged. The acting was tight, well executed and honest in almost every instance. The story was original and thought provoking. The direction was smart because humor was found in almost scene, yet touching moments were never overlooked or brushed over. The only negative about the film is that it could be trimmed just a bit to avoid scenes that are only saying again what we have seen before. But--I cried, I laughed, I thought, and I felt. What else could you ask for when you go to the movies?
