Storyline

Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd star as Erasmus and Paul, a bickering gay couple whose life is turned inside out when a ten-year old boy shows up at their door claiming to be Erasmus' grandson. Neither Paul, nor Erasmus, are ready to give up their extravagant lifestyles to be parents, but maybe this little kid has a thing or two to teach them about the value of family.

Truly enjoyed this film, it's well written and the cast is great
1 July 2018 | by pinkas-2See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect when I started watching, but I was drawn in very quickly. Set in Santa Fe - brilliant idea - and a typical gay couple behaviour, not trying to be nice, just themselves, getting a 12-year-old child by surprised. Others said it was a comedy, that they have laughed... but I did not laugh, just smiled from time to time, and it was good enough. The story and acting are good, believable, and it kept me interested throughout. In a time of so many bad movies produced, this film is a little jem of rationality and good sense. Really liked it, and I hope you will too.
