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

Goofs

Cat drives Phil over to see Eric in Phil's car. Later, Eric and Phil arrive back home together. Presumably they drove back in Eric's car, but Phil must have still had his car because he gets more strawberries. So when did Cat take his car and get the kids? See more »

Cross over hit!!!
29 September 2000 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

Finally a film about real issues that just happens to involve a gay couple. A family film that appeals to gay and straight people. Wonderfully, poignant performances, highlighted by two young actors who light up the screen. Max Mitchell and his team have assembled a truly important film for the millenium.

Elaine Hendrix is incredible as the alcoholic mother. The lead couple are great and represent a much needed example of a large majority of gay men in America. This film helps to erase the old stereotype that all gay men are effeminate. The media has focused far too long on negative images of gay men and GET YOUR STUFF shows a couple dealing with issues that any couple would have to deal with gay or straight. They're not perfect but neither are any of us. BRAVO!!
