Hilarious, but abruptly ends

7/10
Author: JetBoy from San Diego
29 September 2003

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.

Two gay dads meet their daughters boyfriend and consider, Is he or Isn't he?

7/10
Author: Havan_IronOak from NYC/FL
7 May 2003

When Nicoletta bring her boyfriend home to meet her two dads, they begin to wonder when he loves show tunes, can outcook them both and "drops more hairpins" than can be discounted as mere chance.

Overall this enjoyable short is well done and well worth the 12 minutes it takes to view it. This is a twisted twist on the "le Cage et Folles" story that we've seen done and redone to death.
