Trivia:
The character, Eric McNally, is depicted as a former Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player. This movie received permission by the NHL, and the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey organization to use jerseys, clips, and other items relating to that club. It is the first time in major professional sports history that such permission has been given. This caused some controversy due to the character's homosexuality.See more »

Eric McNally:The legu - Ow. No. No, Scot. No. Athletes. Only athletes.
Scot:You were an athlete.
Eric McNally:Yeah, which is why I can say don't do it. It grows back. Very painfully. You would not believe how much it itches. It's not funny.

Great premise but a little too 'after-school special' at times, 21 June 2008
Author: ChristianDiorScientist from Ontario

I haven't read the book so I only have to go on what I saw. The premise is great - fresh and funny. A masculine gay couple end up as guardians of their effeminate 11 year old nephew and try to make a man out of him. The story is less about changing the nephew and more about changing the gay couple, in particular the partner who is an ex-Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player. The movie was enjoyable, light hearted, and good natured but it lacked something -- it resembled an after-school special at times, especially towards the end. There are too many characters with bit parts that don't make enough of an impact in the film. There is a neighbourhood tough kid who inexplicably becomes a friend of the flamboyant nephew and co-workers who come in and out of the film but never really say anything meaningful. An awkward meeting with a school teacher results in her suggesting the boy watch TV to find other role models -- a very clumsy scene without cause or precedence. The writer and director needed to streamline the movie and identify scenes that needed to be pumped up to give the story some poignancy. I was never quite drawn in, brought to tears, laughed out loud or was worried that things might not work out. Its a sweet story but could have been better.
