I was lucky enough to see "Ready? OK!" on the big screen in New York and I can't say enough about it. It was so nice to see a great movie about a family and a single mother coming to grips with her son's "atypical" nature. Joshua doesn't want to play sports, he wants to cheer. And why shouldn't he? The conservative Catholic school doesn't know what to do with him while his mom, Andy, gently tries to convince him to do other activities. Meanwhile Andy's struggling brother, Alex, shows up to further complicate her frazzled life.

A kind homosexual neighbor (wonderfully played by "Lost" actor Michael Emerson) helps Andy and her family see that Joshua is perfect, just the way he is.

What I really appreciated about the film was that it doesn't hit you over the head that Joshua is probably gay. He may be gay but all we know is he loves to cheer. Lurie Posten is a real find as Joshua. You can't help but love him and cheer for him.

You won't be disappointed in "Ready? OK!". It's a well-made smart little movie that deserves a wide audience. Check it out!!!

There's not a lot to this DVD, and it IS very predictable. However, it is interesting enough as an exploration of gender expectations and associated issues without going to an extreme of repression or the far end of license.

What an amazing film. So often situations present themselves that deter us from our goals and aspirations. The characters in this film tell a believable and striking story about how love and passion vanquish doubt. It is also an undeniably refreshing microcosm demonstrating the relevant double-edged sword that homosexuality is in society.

This is a great film about family,acceptance, and love. The characters are real, people you know, family and friends. Importantly it is all about acceptance, of who we are, what we can do and where we belong.

I really enjoyed this movie. It's warm, touching, funny, and sweet. Many of us can relate to feeling different from everyone else as a child, and this movie shows how he and the people around him deal with that difference. Not a perfect movie, but well done, well acted, and with a wonderful cast.

When little Josh (Lurie Poston) dreams of cheerleaders, it's not in the usual way.... he wants to be one of them. Josh dreams of being a cheerleader at his strict Catholic school. The nuns won't allow him, but he will do anything to achieve his dream, from having a jog-a-thon to helping out his down-on-his-luck uncle. In the meantime, his single mother Andrea (Carrie Preston) is baffled. First, she turns to her confessor, to whom she pours out her heart in a powerful scene, and he suggests she place Josh on the wrestling team&have him hang out with the other boys rather than girls. It's not unlike A Parent's Guide to Preventing Homosexuality and The Battle for Normality: Self-Therapy for Homosexual Persons It leads to sad consequences. Ben Linus, her gay neighbor, comforts her;he's now consoling mothers instead of causing premature deaths in childbirth like his own outside Portland, Oregon (Lost: The Complete Collection)

"Ready? OK!" is superior to most comedies made these days. It's laugh out loud funny, it has unforgettable characters, but it also touches on serious issues and can also be poignant&touching. One can also see it as a retelling of the Adonis myth. In the myth of Adonis, Myrrha was enamored of her father, Cinyras, King of Persia (Metamorphoses: A New Translation by Charles Martin) When he impregnated her, he pursued her in a fury...

Format: DVD
Josh is an intelligent 10 year old boy, living with his single mother, Andrea (Carrie Preston), a local television remote producer. Andrea worries about Josh's growing up without a father, and her deadbeat brother's occasional presence in the home may be doing more harm than good. Then there's the gay next-door neighbor, Charlie (played by Michael Emerson from "Lost"), whom Josh seems to have a good rappor with. Josh wants to quit the wrestling team, find a way to get on the cheerleading squad (which is "girls only" at the Catholic school he attends), and - with Charlie's help - dresses up as one of the Von Trapp girls for a school Halloween party. Uh, oh.

The film deserves kudos for its fine acting (including newcomer Lurie Poston as Josh, although he was a bit big to be playing a 10 year old), as well as providing a positive message about diversity and changing the rules where necessary. The direction is good, although I noticed some audio problems making some characters' lines difficult to understand. I thought the film concentrated too much on the mother's and uncle's problems, while it would have been better devoting more time to Josh's experiences, making the plot a bit less predictable and ordinary. DVD includes commentary and blooper reel. Not to be confused with a similar (and identically titled) gay short also released theatrically in 2008, which has been shown on Logo. Overally, I give the film three stars out of five.
