OY VEY, this movie's GREAT!!!
24 January 2010 | by chelseasatticSee all my reviews

I saw this film last night at a special viewing for the Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. The director/writer/producer was on hand for a Q&A after the presentation and of the many questions asked there was one idiot who reflected the narrow-minded opinion that a couple of reviewers have hit on here in this forum. Yes, the movie has a lot of stereo-types and clichés but for those who suggest those are no longer pertinent or happening today as this generation comes out, YOU'RE WRONG! I sat through the movie laughing to the point of tears at times BECAUSE so many of the situations were EXACTLY like my coming out in the last decade. This movie is sensitive to those issues and does tackle the issue of Gay Adoption in a loving way. It is not a documentary or drama, it is a comedy and light-hearted about a tough subject. Thanks for bringing it to us! GREAT cast and wonderful director! I hope we do see it in mainline theatres and that parents and kids who have gone this route can laugh about it together!
