Editorial Reviews

All Aboard! Rosie's Family Cruise demonstrates that gay families can be just as loving, sharing, exasperating, and embarrassing as heterosexual ones. A documentary of the Atlantic Ocean cruise sponsored by Rosie O'Donnell, All Aboard! features rich, compelling interviews with gay couples and their children, with brief musical numbers (some sweet, some cloying, some campy) and standup comedy sprinkled here and there. The parents include football players, hairdressers, and police officers, while the kids range from infants to rambunctious teenagers. While part of the point of the documentary is that these families are as typical as families with male and female parents, it's astonishing how self-possessed and open these teenagers are; having faced prejudice all of their lives, they've had to define themselves in ways most teens take for granted--and the result is a decidedly atypical poise and perception. But perhaps the most striking moment of the documentary comes at the very beginning: As the families come on board for the cruise and find themselves in an environment without judgment, the relief on their faces is palpable. All Aboard! is deceptively simple; it seems to unfold without shape, but by the end it's covered an impressive array of topics, both personal and political, without ever feeling preachy or forced. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

One cruise. Five hundred families. Thousands of memories. This feature-length documentary brings viewers onboard the Norwegian Dawn cruise ship for a joyous voyage, in which celebrity superstar Rosie O?Donnell and her family joined hundreds of other gay, lesbian, bisexual and straight families on a weeklong trip from New York City to the Bahamas and back. With a bold stroke only Rosie could make, a joyous new community was born in this judgment-free setting, as passengers celebrated their freedom and made a positive, progressive statement about what ?family? means today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rosie is just God-sent December 29, 2006
Definately moving in many ways. More movies should be made like this displaying the love. I have to say this is so inspiriring and my mother (who by the way is anti-gay rights) has now reevaluated many of her beliefs. Very inspiring & touching. Thnx Rosie for showing this side of humanity! we love you rosie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it January 5, 2007
It was great to watch something so inspiring. Seeing Gay & Lesbian families on their vacation, looking for the same comfort & fun as everyone else on vacation.. It is something for everyone to watch. It shows how the gay & lesbian community is just like every other family. They want kids to grow with & have a happy, healthy family life.

I am a lesbian looking for all those things with my life partner. We want to have a happy, healthy family. This is something we can show to our family & friends so they can see how we are no different from what everyone else in the world, we just might have to go about it in a different way to accomplish it. It is a Fantastic show, and I hope Rosie tapes more of her cruises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acceptance= Love July 24, 2006
This DVD I thought truly captured the essence of acceptance of those who are "different".. it shows acceptance concerning sexuality, racial differences etc.. It makes you realize, when it all comes down to it, people are all the same no matter who we are. Everyone just wants and deserves the right to feel accepted, love and happiness. I feel it's a great dvd to help open the minds of those who may be "homophobic" ... it'll help them see that people just want to live their lives the best way they can without having to feel discrimination of any kind. The DVD made me cry, laugh out loud and smile. It showed me that there are so many others out there like me who I can relate to, and for that alone, I give this DVD 5 stars! Bravo!

By Patty Z
I am straight. I Loved this DVD. It showed the love of all types families. People are so homophobic its shame. I felt bad for the couples it should be legal for them to get married, you can see how much they love each other. They should have all the same rights.

If we could all be so lucky to have such loving parents. I really enjoyed the DVD and I was very moved. I think more people should watch it just to see how gay families really act everyone has their own ideas but they are really just like you and me. Very well done. Wonderful!!!! And ......I LOVE ROSIE! It was nice to see her and her family together :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You RFamily June 14, 2006
I really appreciate the time and effort that was put in this wonderful documentary. I love all the love, knowledge, and insight that it transfers from a percpective that I've never fully seen before. As a lesbian woman in a long term relationship ... it actually makes my ovaries twitter.

I know this movie will indeed change one person's view about just how normal a gay household is, and share with others to give the ripple effect about all RFamilys.

Way to start the wave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required viewing August 1, 2006
This DVD should be required viewing. If all people could be as loving and kind and wonderful as the folks on this cruise the world would be a far better place.

The children shown will be our leaders of tomorrow and I for one am glad for that. Perhaps they will be able to bring peace to our world where others have failed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness for a film about diverse families! May 14, 2007
Rosie and Kelli reinforce the truth that families define themselves. I have watched this documentary 3 times and have only become more of a believer that family is family. I must thank them for providing a safe place for children in "non-traditional" families.
