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.

Trivia

The film was actually shot in two different houses for Erasmus and Paul's home, since they didn't have all the rooms they needed. Thus, they edited the footage to look like one home. See more »

Goofs

The credits have an extra special thank you to EJ Martinez Elementary School. Most, if not all of the school scenes were filmed at Wood-Gormley Elementary School (the sign can be seen in several outside shots of the school entrance). See more »

BEAUTIFUL
30 June 2018 | by atractiveeyesSee all my reviews

I love it!! It's a really nice movie with a beautiful interesting heart whelming story, some sense of humor, great performances, and important message about gay parenting and value of family. Recommended.
