I hesitated between "4" and "7" as the movie isn't really bad but also not very excellent either.
In regards to the homophobic conservatism that exists actually, it's good to have a light movie that involves gays.
On the other hand, the movie is really heavy as the funny lines are crude, full of clichés. In fact, the movie depicts a bit gays like a special gender and maybe like fragile people who were expected to hide. I don't think it's fair. Beyond this, i don't really care about gays: they can do whatever they like but i never understood the need to have gay movies shelves in shops. What interests me is a good story and a good story involves every one.
Another problem is that the movie runs after too much themes: it can be a movie about restaurant, but also a romance or about single parenthood.
If the cast and production is top, finally, i felt like watching a sitcom and that's not the definition of a movie!
