Storyline

Steve and Elias are in the fourteenth year of their relationship, which has hit a rough spot due to Steve breaking what Elias sees as their open relationship agreement. Their relationship problem takes a back seat for an evening when they host a small dinner party for five, the other three being their female friends Antonia and Nicky, and Nicky's new boyfriend Daniel. Especially in Steve's mind, Daniel is obviously gay, as Daniel displays many of what society would call gay stereotypes. Steve and Elias call in a back up opinion in the form of another friend named Marilyn, who has a strong gaydar. If Marilyn supports their perception, Steve and Elias have to decide if they should confront both Nicky and Daniel with their suspicion. Written by Huggo

Hilarious, but abruptly ends
29 September 2003 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

This short film starts out hilarious and doesn't let up. A gay couple meet their daughter's new boyfriend, who sets off their gaydar. As they try and figure out if he's gay or straight, we also learn more about their relationship, and their relatives and friends. The film is well written and well acted. The laugh lines are so frequent you'll need to see it several times to catch the dialog. However, just as the film gets going, it abruptly ends. While it is a short film, it ends before it has made any kind of point or reached any sort of resolution. It sets up a situation and leaves it hanging. Let's hope the director can turn this into a feature film.

Unlike Havan (who commented earlier), I don't see any resemblance to or twist on "La Cage aux Folles", other than the basic fact that both films feature a gay couple who has a daughter.
