Hilarious, Uplifting and Inspirational Classic
30 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's not often that I watch a movie, and then look at the cumulative IMDb rating for the movie, and find myself totally baffled as to why the rating is so low. YOU SHOULD MEET MY SON! is definitely one such film. I just don't understand how the average rating of this movie could possibly be 6.6. This was a hilarious, original, refreshing, unique, engrossing, well-acted, well-written, and well-directed film. I have watched hundreds of "gay-themed movies" and I'd easily rank this one in the top ten, maybe even top five. Certainly not as "deep" as BEAUTIFUL THING or NORTH SEA, Texas or SHELTER or LATTER DAYS, but just as uplifting and inspirational as these other favorites of mine. There is also HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH which kind of defies classification but is without question one of the best of the best as well, both because of the second-to-none soundtrack and because the scene where Hedwig and Tommy kiss with that awful Whitney Houston song playing is the most beautiful and touching make out scene ever captured on film. Although actually the scene in BEAUTIFUL THING where Jamie and Ste make out while that Mama Cass song plays is also the most beautiful and touching make out scene ever....

Getting back to the point, if there is one: although YOU SHOULD MEET MY SON! does not have any poignant and compelling make-out scenes like the ones I just mentioned, it is nevertheless, on the whole, as poignant and compelling as these other wonderful gay-themed movies because its overall tone and point of view are so different from the rest of the genre - and I mean this in the best possible way. I like this movie so much that I bought 5 copies of the DVD on Amazon and had them sent as gifts to my 4 friends, and of course 1 copy for my mother. Who, I am happy to report, has never tried to set me up with anyone, male or female. And I made it very clear, in the gift card, that my giving her this DVD should in no way be interpreted to indicate a desire on my part for things to change in this regard!
