About the Movie
Jenn and Matt are best friends from college who are now in their thirties. Single by choice, Jenn spends her days teaching hot yoga and running errands for her boss. Matt suffers from comic-book writer's block and can't get over his ex-boyfriend. They decide to fulfill a youthful promise to have a child together... the old fashioned way. Can they navigate the serious and unexpected snags they hit as they attempt to get their careers and dating lives back on track in preparation for parenthood? 'Gayby' is an irreverent comedy about friendship growing older, sex, loneliness, and the family you choose.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [Balances] broad comedy and warm-and-fuzzy sentiment.
Fresh: What lifts Gayby above its sitcom trappings is its emotional generosity and easy warmth, the sense that characters are defined by -- and made funny through -- their aspirations, not their way with a one-liner.
Fresh: Gayby doesn't break a lot of new ground in the rom-com or parenthood fields, but its agreeable balance of humor and sentiment makes it worth adopting.
Fresh: A hilariously bitchy but sweet comedy that serves as Gotham's answer to Portlandia.
Saw this at the Maryland Film Fest and loved it!! On my Christmas wish list for sure.
Heartfelt with very funny moments but ...
... the straight character gets a rather intense sex scene while the gay character gets to ... make out. Briefly. A decade later and it's Will & Grace's unequal depiction of sexuality all over again. Do love the appearance of cast members from The Outs, Hunting Season, Girls, and Queer as Folk.
Finally Great Gay-Themed Comedy
FINALLY, a great gay-themed comedy! Most gay-themed comedies in the past decade were even worse than Katherine Heigl romantic comedies (I'm not counting "Knocked Up").
So freakin' funny and awesome and generous, this movie. Hopefully this will inspire a wave of New New Queer Comedy and we can put the awful "Eating Out" and "Another Gay Movie" series out of their misery.
