This is basically a gay rom com from writer and director Stewart Ward. It stars Jonathan Bray as Todd, he has his brother , Barry, living on his couch, in order to endear himself, Barry has put a lonely add on the inter web for his brother in order to get him back in the saddle after his divorce. This leads to Todd meeting a kindred spirit and they do not exchange photos but start an online chat up.
So with hopes high Todd goes off to a coffee shop for his blind date. There he meets Kelly (Wilson Cruz) an out Latino and they get off on the wrong foot, both waiting to meet someone. As they wait for their respective dates it becomes achingly obvious that they are their dates. The thing is they had already established that they had a love of films in common so Todd invites Kelly to an Ingmar Bergman double bill and amazingly he agrees; I mean Ingmar Bergman its enough to kill a relationship before its got a chance.
Things take on a whole new light when everyone assumes that he is actually gay and has decided to come out at 35. Then his mum turns up, played brilliantly by Sally Kirkland and things just gets worse for him. Along the way there are more than the average number of laughs and good performances from everyone, there are no bedroom antics worth tweeting home about, so avoid if that is your bag.
I actually really enjoyed it and laughed on a number of occasions, there is no new ground being broken here and the usual stereotypes get played for comic effect, but it does hang together well and never gets boring. It is warm, touching and funny in equal measure, not genre busting, but all films do not have to be. If you like a funny story with gayness running through it then I am sure you will enjoy.
