Great movie!! Very complex and entertaining.
26 February 2009 | by (wa) – See all my reviews

I was very surprised that this movie was so good, its very entertaining from the first minute to the end, and has some great, great acting, including: Joseph Fiennes as the transvestine father/doctor, he's really good - the mimics, the whole acting, Dot-Marie Jones as the transsexual male, and some really well-developed characters and plots. Every character in this movie has an different problem of sexual nature: 18-year old son's girlfriend is pregnant, his younger 10-year old brother seeks sexual experience online and he when finally meets his encounter, it turns out to be an overweight teenage boy instead of a 17-year old hot girl (who btw. handles the situation in a very mature way), his mother complains about hers and her husband's intimate life, and finally is almost seduced by her son's friend, a really cute Tranny couple (great applaud for Marie Jones and Alexandra Billings) and finally, the father, who likes to wear women's clothes and when he chooses to dress up as a female nurse for a Halloween party, its the best thing thats ever happened to him, and who disinterestedly helps a troubled trans-gender couple living close by. Very worth watching and with some great acting and great music.
