Inlaws & Outlaws cleverly weaves together the true stories of couples and singles - both gay and straight - and all into a collective narrative that's as hilarious as it is heartbreaking. At the top of the film, we meet a variety of storytellers one on one. We don't know who's gay or straight or who's with whom.

And there's the nice girl from Brooklyn who somehow always picks the guys who don't treat her right - until she finds and marries a fellow almost too good to be true.

My husband and I saw this recently. We went because we have a lesbian daughter and wanted to support alternative points of view. I didn't realize it would be so damn funny!
The music is amazing, the people in it are incredible. We both walked away so uplifted by the experience and talking about it for hours. I had hoped to gain some insight into my daughter's relationship (I did) but didn't expect to learn so much about my own. It's really quite amazing. I could've done without one couple at the end but it didn't take away from a wonderful experience.
Two thumbs up from our family -- four when it comes around again and we take our daughters.
