He keeps his cool as his quirky Midwestern-hearted parents try to set him up with his high school sweetheart, Abby. But when his boyfriend, Nathan, shows up at their doorstep unannounced, Gunn must put on a charade to keep the relationship a secret. With pressure mounting from all sides, will Gunn come out before the truth does? Written by Anonymous

Olaf is home for Christmas in Wisconsin, but in just about every outdoor scene, there is green grass and leaves on all the trees, something you'd never see in Wisconsin in December. Wrongfully considered a mistake: Actually Anya explains how they moved to warmer climate to avoid the harsh Wisconsin winters. See more »


Olaf 'Gunn' Gunnunderson: Did you guys hear what I said? I'm gay.
Nathan Stanford: Um, I'm gay too if that wasn't clear. It was, ok.

User Reviews

Fun movie, not too heavy handed
4 December 2009 | by risteen59See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. . .

I was not perfect, but it was fun. . .

It didn't preach hard about coming out. . .

It seemed that the problems were that there was no communication from any of them. . .

It had touches from old screw ball movies of the 1940's. . .

Misunderstandings. . .

Confused identities . .

Anya the mother could have played off of the Three Stooges or the Marx Brothers. . .

I would love to see these characters in another movie. . .

Perhaps, the lives of the two young lovers as a couple.
