Storyline

Social Worker Gloria finds brothers T.J. and Brian, once again, abandoned by their alcoholic mother. With nowhere else to turn, she delivers them to a gay couple (Phil and Eric) on a waiting list to adopt an infant. While 8-year-old Brain is ready to give this new situation a go, 12-year-old T.J. has already been hardened by past rejections to give ANY situation a go. Both boys must either accept this situation or be split up in group homes. After several calls, T.J. gets his drunken mother, Cat, to drop by, and she ends up staying as well. This puts a strain on the gay men's relationship, forcing one to leave while the other remains to fix the problems with the boys and their mother. Written by statmanjeff

Very cute premise, cute actors but terrible script!
24 April 2004 | by meyer-8See all my reviews

This movie starts out fine and has a very enticing premise: two gay guys who want to be foster parents (aren't they all waiting for an infant to adopt?) get 2 unruly pre-teen boys, but end up loving them. The trouble is that the story bogs down in the middle and goes through some strange wormholes. There are incidents, scenes and action that have no connection. It was impossible to follow a plot at all. What a shame! The scriptwriter must have had a stroke at that point and just wrote gibberish afterwards. It ruined what was otherwise a very cute movie. PS The reference to AA is quite fascinating, and could be seen as being very socially enlightening.
