Storyline

At age 55, Philadelphia CEO Paul Grecco decides to make changes in his life, including the sale of his company, and that terrifies him. He was right to be terrified, because the new owners force him to retire early. His sister, Elise decides that the best things for him is a puppy she has gotten him, and dating the women that Elise sets Paul up with. It's funny though, but Paul finds himself disinterested in the women Elise fixes him up with, and oddly fascinated by a young man he meets while walking his new puppy in the park across from his condo. Paul has never really thought about dating or sex before, with anyone, so now what should he do? Written by trivwhiz

Trivia

'Jon Lindstrom (I)' portrays Paul, who has not had a dog since childhood, retires and is given a dog by his sister, and must adjust, begrudgingly to having a dog as an adult, which is ironic considering Lindstrom appeared in Must Love Dogs (2005). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Paul: [voiceover] My day starts at 6:30 AM. I don't need an alarm clock. I wake up every day and dress for my role as CEO. That means fifty tailored suits at all times. Right now I have fifty-four. Dress shirts - very important: one-twenty-eight; crisp white - always best; an occasional pale yellow or blue. Now, a tie says everything about a man. Silk. Ties should only be silk: eighty stripes; a dozen solids. Oh, and one rogue paisley my sister bought me in Palm Beach - probably hammered ...

Amateur writing, Such Clunky Dialogue!
3 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The actor playing the gay guy must of been the author of this movie because he sure as heck is not an actor. I looked him up on IMDb and this is his only credit. No surprise there. This is like a commercial for being gay, and so cliché. The gay guys are so gay. The main one, Andy wears baseball caps that say San Francisco, and PFLAG, ( families for gay and lesbians, who must of helped pay the film, since he wears this cap most of the film). One word for this movie, clunky and awkward. It feels like a student video for school. The idea was to show a middle age man discovering he is gay. Labored bad sitcom writing, making points with baseball hats. Groan. Yes that bad.
