An independent film about a guy, Steven (who happens to be gay), who's ex-girlfriend from high school, Nancy, shows up with a surprise, their 10 year old son Luke! Nancy never told Steven that she got pregnant on prom night with his child (the only girl Steven ever slept with by the way). Nancy has reappeared in Steven's life dying of cancer. She informs Steven that her last wish is to have him "the natural father" adopt Luke. WOW what a blow for a guy who is in a relationship with another guy and neither one of them have a clue on how to raise a 10 year old kid! After many talks with his boyfriend Peter, Steven decides that he will make Nancy's dieing wish come true, but NOT without a little CRASH COURSE FIRST! Written by
I was pleasantly surprised by this film. A real heart tugger of a movie with some wonderful comedic moments and some great one liners. The antics of Derek Maki as Peter really made the film. He delivers some really fun lines with quick precision. Stephen, Nina and Dominic were well cast in their roles. The supporting cast of moms and friends were fun and poignant. There were many clever situations in this movie where these richly created characters were able to move through in very interesting ways. It kept my mind busy throughout, mainly to ask the question, "What will Peter do next?" That character really drove the film. In a world of million dollar movies and big name stars, it's nice to see a really competent picture come out of a small budget. A very rewarding experience.
