Trivia

The title, Mulligans, is a golf term to refer to getting a second chance to strike a ball in a hole. A golfer would get an extra stroke after a poor shot, and it's not counted on the scorecard. See more »

Goofs

If Stacy knew Nathan was gay, then she shouldn't have stopped golf as a conversation topic because if she wanted to save that marriage, she would have needed Nathan distracted by golf. See more »

Quotes

Birdie Davidson: If mom and dad break up, I'm scared I'll never see them again either.
Tyler Davidson: Well, they might not split up. They might stay together. They don't know yet. They're still... talking it through.
Birdie Davidson: I think that's what you should do with Chase.

A gay Mulligan stew...a soap opera with more suffering than sex
2 August 2009 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Well-heeled family man, a loving husband and father of two, is forced into coming out of the closet after falling in lust with his college-age son's best friend, a budding artist and (somewhat timid) homosexual. Facetious drama ostensibly aimed at gay viewers, but one which fails to give its target audience anything substantial or upbeat to connect with. Everyone suffers with such relish, but where are the bracing highs of finally bonding with someone who shares the same feelings? The dialogue is fairly worthless throughout (Child: "Mommy, what were those two men doing in the bushes?" Mother: "Probably looking for a lost ball."), which may be the reason why the movie is carpeted from one end to the next with generic 'romantic' music worthy of a daytime soap (it often substitutes for dialogue which, in this case, isn't such a bad thing). The film's weakest link is the casting: Dan Payne (as the dad) and Charlie David (as his young house guest) are both attractive actors, but Payne is too young for his role and David (looking about 30) too old for his. It's a step in the right direction that no character here perishes in an accident or commits suicide--but queer cinema still has an awfully long way to go. Cutting down on the guilt and the shame are the next obstacles to conquer. ** from ****
