About the Movie
Christmas is approaching, and Paul’s adopted sister Alana is coming home for the holidays. This won't be just a regular family celebration, as she's recently engaged and the weekend will be spent planning her June wedding with her best friends Roy and Vicki. Problem is that Roy is Paul's ex-boyfriend, and the two young men haven't seen each other since their very messy breakup. Nervous about seeing his ex again, Roy talks his good friend Gavin into joining him for the weekend, and pretending to be his new boyfriend. When Paul and Gavin meet, sparks of attraction fly, but Gavin thinks Roy's still hung up on Paul. This charming romantic comedy is a funny look at family bonds, misunderstandings and the “perfect wedding.”
Just the surprise I was looking for this evening. Really touching, accepting film with everyone getting a great subplot.
One of the Good Ones
Just so you know where I'm coming from: Gay films like Shelter, Latter Days, Boy Culture, Mr. Right, Patrick, Breakfast with Scott, Private Romeo, and The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Greene to be among the "REALLY good ones." This one aspires to be one of those. And it's fun.
The first 20 minutes of the film starts out a little jumpy, but then the pace slows down, the acting becomes more believable, and even though it's obvious where the film is going by that point, it turn out to be a fun journey over the next hour. So, if you're all about the destination, maybe you'll find it too predictable. If you're more about getting to know the characters, getting the feel for the place, and going along for the ride, you'll find this to be 82 minutes well-spent.
And secretly, despite the schmaltz, you wouldn't mind a story like this being your own. Enjoy!
Just watched this out of a mix of bordom and curiousity on netflix... now I want to own my own. Can be a bit jumpy in the beginning. The plot is plausable. And the comedy isn't too distracting (if that makes sense). I loved the story. Tugs at the heart a bit. I wish it was a few minutes longer to development of the characters more. Nice side plots for all the characters so it's not redundant and has multiple themes. Photography is really good for a small lable film, to the point of I'd compare it to major motion picture products.
