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.

Paul Rudd never lets me down
26 November 2018 | by mimi-77111See all my reviews

I hadn't heard of this movie until it was released on HBO. I had to watch it because of my love, Paul Rudd. The entire movie had me laughing out loud while my husband was trying to sleep. I couldn't contain myself. I'll definitely watch this again soon.
