finaly gays like myself in a movie and in a very good one too !
if been waiting for years for a movie like this. it`s got comedy, it`s got tragedy, it`s showing real life and it all comes together in a movie fun, entertaining, educational and filled with love to detail.
you will laugh, you will cry and most important - you will think about what you`ve seen and heared.
i recognised myself a lot in this movies or saw "friend-alikes".
cant wait to buy the DVD and watch it again !
and know what !? - the child is the real star of this movie, knowing live better then the grownups.
some dialogs are born to be cult (example: the very last sceen of the movie)
