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 »

We can't have a kid - we are Kids!!
23 November 2018 | by davemerinoSee all my reviews

This is a really funny movie. This isn't a portrayal of a regular gay couple, it is a whimsical view of a well to do gay couple that are 2 big ole kids themselves. They are out of touch with "all the little people". The sparring is kind of over the top, but at the same time- just right on the mark. Give it a chance, you'll love it by the end. My fave part is the 2nd parent/teacher conference, right after the Kid's class speech.
