Editorial Reviews

The lives of Eric, an ex-hockey player, and his partner Sam are thrown into turmoil when they are forced to take in Scot, a flamboyant 11-year-old, who is not the sports-loving “boy” they expected. Starring Tom Cavanagh, Ben Shenkman and Noah Bernett.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and heartwarming March 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie completely charmed me. I bought it because I'm a sucker for anything Canada/hockey-related, but loved it because of the characters, especially Eric (Tom Cavanagh) and Scot (Noah Bernett).

Eric and Sam (Ben Shenkman) are a happy, low-key gay couple. Eric is an ex-Toronto Maple Leaf tough guy with a new career as a sportscaster, and generally keeps his orientation a secret except from close friends and family. Sam, a lawyer, would be more comfortable being out publicly, but humors Eric. Their lives are turned upside down when they are given temporary guardianship of "Sam's brother's dead ex-girlfriend's son," Scot.

11-year-old Scot is more flamboyant than either of the men, favoring pink sweater vests, charm bracelets, sparkly headbands and singing Christmas carols at the top of his lungs when he's upset.

Eric ends up being the one to (reluctantly) spend more time with Scot, by virtue of having the more flexible work schedule, and his patience is sorely tested. Scot tends to introduce Eric to strangers by saying "This is Eric. He's gay" and twirls in front of mirrors at the mall trying on clothes. Eric, predictably uncomfortable with both his own orientation being known and with Scot's obvious swishiness, still instinctively stands up for Scot.

Tom Cavanagh as Eric is both very funny and sweet, his exasperation with Scot obvious but his affection for the kid growing despite himself. Eric has a few missteps along the way as he tries a little too successfully to mold Scot into something "less gay", but eventually comes around to the viewpoint that Scot--and he himself--should just be true to themselves.

It's nice to see a gay couple portrayed as just...normal.

5.0 out of 5 stars a big surprise from canada! May 30, 2008
Format:DVD
i was lucky enough to be in toronto last fall when this movie was released in theaters...i was so impressed i went to see it three times!
unlike most "gay" movies, this one is super clean, you wont be embarrassed to show it to your grandmother! the story is heartwarming, funny, sometimes sad, but very uplifting, shows how opening your heart to change can make life better for everyone around you. TOTALLY different adapatation from the book...i must say i enjoyed the movie better then the book! the screenplay should be published as the updated version! this is a movie the gay community should be very proud of....there is a lesson in this film for everyone who watches it!
WONDERFUL, CLEAN, & A SUPER "holiday" type movie for the gay community!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful uplifting comedy March 29, 2010
Format:DVD
I fell in love with this movie long before the first viewing ended. The story is a bit formulaic at times, so events are predictable, but the characters are so well portrayed, and situations so unique, that it feels fresh.

Eric and Sam are a happy, childless, gay couple. Eric was once a professional hockey player for the Toronto Maple Leafs (this is the first gay-themed film where a professional sports team allowed the use of their logo). After a serious injury, he retired as a player, settled in with Sam, and got a job as a sportscaster on TV. Eric keeps his relationship and orientation a secret, except from family and friends, and Sam humors him. One day, they find out that Sam's brother Billy gained custody of 11-year-old Scot when the Scot's mother died of an overdose. Billy had dated the mother (Julia) previously, and Julia had never updated her will. Since Billy is nowhere to be found (he's horribly irresponsible), Child Services places Scot with Sam and Eric for a short while. To complicate matters, Scot turns out to be flamboyant and effeminate. While Eric tries to keep his sexuality a secret, Scot draws attention to it, especially since he introduces Eric to people as "This is Eric. He's watching over me. He's gay." Keep in mind that Eric is not only a former hockey player, but a former, good, professional hockey player who was a great fighter too.

Tom Cavanagh plays Eric wonderfully well. He's interesting and fun to watch, he gives Eric a great personality, has good comedic timing, and shows his chops with the dramatic scenes. It's a joy to watch Eric gradually go from ambivalence to fatherhood through the course of the film. Noah Bernett is great as Scot (with only one "T", since it stops there).

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, funny movie that has heart August 12, 2008
Format:DVD
I ordered this movie from Amazon.ca as Amazon.com did not have any new DVDs and I am so glad I did! This movie made me laugh and cry and want to learn to play hockey! A beautiful story told with heart that proves independent filmmaking takes the cake over a Hollywood blockbuster anyday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Best October 13, 2008
Format:DVD
Breakfast with Scot was the best movie shown during this year's GLBT film festival in Philadelphia. I have been impatiently waiting for it to become available on DVD so that I can own it and share it with friends and family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sanitized, but still good March 2, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this film's original plot, but had a few issues. I understand that the one guy had a problem with public displays of affection, but there were few private displays of affection, almost like they were afraid to show two men affectionate towards each other. Tom Cavanagh is adorable and could be sexy, but not in this film. Also, as a gay parent of a gay son, I have some connection to the story and I felt that some of the action was a bit forced and not realistic, but put there to move the plot along. Overall, I enjoyed it; I just felt that it could have been better.
