In their own ingenuous way
26 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

You know when I first came across this title I thought it would be New York Jewish. Instead it's a delightful southern fried gay comedy about a concerned mother who wants her son to finally get hitched. Not thrilled about her son being gay, nevertheless Joane McGee and her unmarried sister Carol Goans are going to do what they can to make son Stewart Carrico happy.

Imagine the Dubois sisters invading an Atlanta gay bar in their best Lucy and Ethel manner. It's quite a sight as they make all kinds of new friends and invite them for dinner. Just like Jimmy Stewart and Harvey used to entertain.

But Carrico is nothing if not a dutiful son and he's going to get married to a good Christian girl Ginger Pullman. Pullman and her fundamentalist parents collide at a dinner party thrown by McGee and the results are hilarious. Even Pullman rebels against her parents, a touch added to this Auntie Mame type climax.

As you can see You Should Meet My Son takes some inspiration from many fine sources. It's a fine comedy from the gay cinema and I recommend it highly to all audiences.
