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.

Quotes

Paul: You know that if you were dying... I would cut the heart out of my chest for you. I would die so that you would live. That's how much I love you. That's how much I worship you. And I think that you actually know. You know that. And it doesn't matter to you.
Erasmus: It does matter to me.
Paul: It doesn't matter. And I can't stand it anymore.

Just so sweet
30 June 2018 | by dcstar-54315See all my reviews

I never ever write a review or leave a feedback on a movie. But this movie was just so CUTE and Lovely. It made me laugh and story was great. This may not be your type of movie but i enjoyed it a lot.

All actors were great and entertaining in their roles. Starting was bit confusing but as time goes, all become perfect.

Just enjoy.
