This is a fast-paced comedy about a 40-year-old gay man who finds himself dating two equally lovable men - a secure 50-year-old who came out later in life, and an adventurous 30-year-old who wasn't looking for a relationship. What he doesn't find out right away is that the two men are, in fact, father and son. And as they say, wackiness ensues. Written by
trash---try-- Nobody Else But You---for a non gay/gay movie....
I was trying to show my roommate how Netflix streaming works and unfortunately picked this movie. The synopsis seemed like it might be entertaining. After about 10 minutes into the thing I realized it was going to be unwatchable...actually 1 minute into the movie when the protagonist cuts his birthday cake and it made some loud fart like sound---that was intended to be funny...I had a very bad premonition.
Leaden stereotyped semi-bitchy West Hollywood gay dialog as other reviewers have commented yes yes yes it is queenie that sure doesn't help; but what killed it for me was being boring and trite and decidedly unfunny. What is so funny about having his brother send a stripper? That is more of a trauma to watch for most gays. Add on the bad acting and you have a real lemon.
I have been out for 20 years and queen humor is like a drag show entertaining for about 3 minutes and then a complete bore.
I agreed with the reviewer that most of the characters were downright disagreeable or grating. One of the promiscuous friends found a trick with a large phallus we were forced to look at etc etc.... That explained why he couldn't come to the birthday party. Someone less than intelligent wrote and directed this thing--
I unplugged it after about 15 minutes...it brings up the hardest part about using Netflix streaming: There is so much garbage on it...in fact the hardest and most time consuming part of using it is trying to find something watchable. If I am short on time I will pick some 50s B movie at least it will be coherent unlike this thing.
I so wish they would arrive at the stage where movies are not "gay" but just happen to have a sympathetic character or two who happen to be gay. A gay James Bond---hopefully in my lifetime.

Try: Nobody Else But You ==== witty funny with incidental gay characters.
