Storyline

Cross cultural and cross-generational challenges for gays, lesbians, and their parents. Janet wants to marry Cara who's fearful her Chinese parents will reject her if she comes out. Cara's parents are in town for a family wedding. But is fear of her parents' response Cara's only obstacle to commitment? Meanwhile, nearby, Jesse, at 14, has come out to his mom and tofu-cooking step-father the week that his own fun but flaky father, a gay actor, arrives for a rare visit. Jesse's enthusiastic embrace of his dad throws Norman, the step-father, into a crisis of confidence. A cooking lesson, a makeover, and a therapy session where the patient asks pointed questions propel the plot. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

endearing, but not convincing
18 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Saw it at the Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian Film Fest.

What can I say? Against my better judgment, I liked it, but it seemed to me that that acting was a little...weak (mostly I noticed this from the family of the teen boy). I mean, the script wasn't stellar to begin with, but the actors didn't make me believe the relationships.

The plot is also predictable.

Nonethelss, I liked it. The characters are likable, and the plot is not challenging or upsetting. It's sweet, the characters care about each other, and I don't count it as fifty minutes ill-spent.

But I don't recommend it.
