fun and nice music.
22 March 2006 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

Even though it is about an old gay guy which even gay guys think that it is not attractive, but this movie is very fun and entertaining to watch. The music is well composed, fits with the scenes very well.

I like the "wife" because she is a good actor. She is just so dramatic. I especially like that scene when she had to change from smiling face to instant sad face, very authentic.

I also like that moment when the young guy was playing the piano, he winked at the guest. And you can hear that special "ding" sound correlated with his winking, quite fresh to watch.

This movie reminds me of the Birdcage, I wonder if Hollywood will ever make a movie from this one.
