Product Description

A whimsical gay romance with a heart of gold, Make the Yuletide Gay follows a young gay couple Nathan and Gunn as they face their first Christmas apart. Sweet-natured Gunn (Keith Jordan) has to go right back in the closet to survive the holidays with his wacky Wisconsin parents, and cutie-pie Nathan (Adamo Ruggerio, Degrassi: The Next Generation ) is preparing to spend another Christmas with his cold-hearted parents. When Nathan surprises everyone by turning up on Gunn's doorstep, the couple is hilariously forced to juggle a hetero charade with their gay reality. With its bright, witty dialogue and handsome cast, Yuletide is one holiday treat you'll want to savor many times over.

Format: DVD
The college dorm's resident "out and proud" gay couple, Olaf ("Gunn") and Nathan, are going home to spend Christmas with their respective families, and those families couldn't be more different. Whereas "trust fund baby" Nathan's parents are rather cold, status-seeking yuppies, Olaf's parents are a couple of former hippies who start decorating their home for the holidays months before. When Nathan's parents stand him up to go on a holiday cruise, he decides to surprise Olaf by joining him at his parents, only to find out that his parents have no clue that he is gay. Nathan immediately tries to "butch it up" a bit, but is disappointed and hurt that Olaf is unable - more like unwilling - to introduce him as his boyfriend.

A sweet and engaging, though somewhat corny, story about honesty, self-acceptance and - ultimately - the meaning of love. Newcomer Keith Jordan does a first-rate job as the emotionally conflicted Olaf, and is surrounded by an excellent cast of veteran character actors, including Derek Long ("3-Day Weekend" and several other gay films) as Olaf's stoner dad, actress/voiceover artist Kelly Keaton as his jolly mother, Hallee Hirsh (who played Dr. Greene's daughter on "ER") as Olaf's supposed girlfriend Abby, Alison Arngrin (best know as Nellie Olsen on "Little House on the Prairie") as Abby's mom, Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher on "Star Trek: TNG") as Nathan's mom, and Adamo Ruggiero (Marco for five seasons on "Degrassi: The Next Generation") as Nathan. The direction and technical aspects seem flawless, and there are even a half dozen or so original songs on the soundtrack. DVD isn't rated, but would likely be PG; definitely a film you could (and should) share with your parents and younger siblings. Popular at several gay film festivals, and in a limited theatrical run, this just might become a timeless gay holiday classic. Watch out for the mistletoe over the doorway, and I give "Yuletide" a full five stars out of five.

Format: DVD
Sometimes sweetness and innocence are enough. A movie doesn't have to be the best, the most technically assured, when the characters that inhabit it are filled with genuine goodness. Among the dreck of most gay cinema, it's an unexpected surprise to find a movie that rests on the laurels of simple affection and succeeds.

The premise is simple enough: Olaf is a college senior. While he's freely out on campus, things are different at the Gunnunderson (yes, Gunnunderson) household. Olaf goes home to visit his wacky parents, and is shocked when his boyfriend, Nathan, having been ditched by his cold-hearted parents, shows up on the doorstep. Olaf isn't out, of course, so he introduces Nathan as his "roommate." The film follows Olaf as he struggles to tell his parents who he truly is, and Nathan, who isn't at all comfortable being shoved back in the closet.

I've read some reviews criticizing the film's over-the-top characters and sometimes awkward dialogue. But you know what? "Make the Yuletide Gay" has such a joyous spirit that none of those things matter. Cynicism isn't wanted here. Olaf and Nathan (played charmingly by Keith Jordan and Adamo Ruggiero) have true, genuine affection for one another. Olaf's parents, while not necessarily realistic, are filled with love and, knowing that Nathan has been dumped by his parents, take him and treat him like one of their own. And the most miraculous part of the film? It's practically devoid of negative gay stereotypes. No drugs. No random sex (save for one hilariously interrupted intimate moment). And when the drama comes, it isn't born of archetypes, but of two characters, deeply in love, who can't bear to watch each other suffer.

This is a sweet movie, a hidden gem.

At last a gay film which is well written and acted, unpredictable and a true feel-good film which stands above the rest of the mostly crappy American gay films that have been released this year. There should be more films like this. A true rarity.

This movie is very reminiscent of "Meet the Parents" and "Guess Who." The story centers around Olaf "Gun" Gununderson. He's a gay college student who's out on campus, but not at home. When Christmas break lets out, Gun and his boyfriend Nathan (played by Degrassi's Adamo Ruggiero) say goodbye thinking they won't see each other for the break and thus keeping Gun's secret. However, hilarity ensues as Nathan has a change of plans and ends up on the Gununderson's doorway a few days before Christmas. This movie is not a deep, emotional, change the world type film, but it is very entertaining and funny with moments of pure honesty and emotion spread throughout. This film is definitely a feel good movie with the power to make you laugh and at the same time become emotionally invested. Ruggiero puts on a great performance that seems effortless and Keith Jordan (Gun) brings to light the frustrations and fear of coming out to one's family while at the same time portraying a very out and proud gay activist on campus. This film is definitely worth a watch and the characters will make you fall in love with them.

I love this movie. You have quite a cast of characters, from the two young men to the stoner father, the giggly, hilariously clueless mother, the next door Cougar (played by Alison Arngrim aka Nellie Oleson!) Alison's appearance is worth the price of this movie alone. Whenever I feel down, I watch this movie to brighten up my day. Pure, fun entertainment with some corny gay humor & puns thrown in for good measure. It's a nice change from the formulaic Christmas movies (which I love BTW). This one is somewhat formulaic but the gay theme makes it different and delightfully quirky. Make some hot cocoa and snuggle up with your honey & enjoy this feel-good holiday film!
