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 Websurfer

Gay Rom Com
10 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Best film, ever! to borrow a phrase. Certainly a film for the steadfast romantic who believes true love conquers all, the premise is outrageous then unfolds with a series of farcical scenes climaxing with "the moment of knowing." For those who can look beyond the necessary nudity and witty dialog, the story makes a poignant social statement on romance, age-factor and age-range. It doesn't matter. Find someone that contents you, and hang on. Mr. Williams has been influenced by the key influential founders of the Gay Romance Awakening--Mssrs. Archer, Montgomery and others--who spearheaded the journey of gay cinema from dismal stories of HIV/AIDS, bleak hustler, addled substance-abuse, self- loathing and abusive coming out to celebration of being gay and being loved. Kudos on borrowing a tried-and-tested Hollywood formula and adapting it to the gay experience.

Unlike a night of bar-hopping, this movie will leave you feeling-good about yourself and without a hangover headache adding a ton of wrinkles and gray hairs to cover those sagging pectorals.
