Editorial Reviews

Writer/director Rob Williams (Make The Yuletide Gay, Role/Play) returns with a new romantic comedy about finding love a little too close to home. As he reluctantly celebrates his 40th birthday, Doug (Eric Dean, star of Arizona Sky and Nine Lives) finds himself falling for two very different but equally lovable men - Jacob, a secure 50-year-old (Michael Nicklin) who came out later in life, and Colton, an adventurous 30-year-old (Benjamin Lutz, star of The Love Patient and Bite Marks) who literally is the boy next door. What Doug doesn't know right away is that the two men are, in fact, father and son! How long can Doug juggle both relationships before everyone finds out the truth?

5.0 out of 5 stars Positive and entertaining romantic comedy. November 29, 2012
After his friends flake out on his planned 40th birthday celebration, Doug (Eric Dean) is feeling alone, with nobody special in his life, except for Jacob (Michael Nicklin), an older man with whom he occasionally gets together. When hunky 30 year old new neighbor Colton (Benjamin Lutz) comes to the door, a fortunate misunderstanding throws he and Doug together, and they start to develop a promising relationship. All goes well until he finds out that Colton is actually Jacob's son, so he has been dating "the boy next door" and his dad!.

An interesting and amusing screenplay by director Rob Williams, with an ambitious cast of supportive players that adds much to the story. An amusing situation, but it also raises serious issues about ageism in the gay community, as well as making a sacrifice for the happiness of someone you love. It's a positive message appropriate for viewing in mixed company.

DVD has deleted scenes, bloopers, commentary and a "making of" featurette. Not rated, but would be a light R for brief nudity and sexual content. Five stars out of five.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie. Actually has a plot unlike most gay movies. February 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was a great film. We watch a lot of gay movies that are plotless or it seems as if the film makers ran out of money during production. A lot of the movies just kind of end leaving you guessing what happens next. This film was very interesting and it has a surprise ending.

What I liked most about this film was the fact that it seemed real and it also addressed the older generation of gay men. Unfortunately 50 is like 80 to most gay men. Just remember that the older gay men paved the way for a more acceptable society for younger gay men. I am in my 40's and my partner is 30 years older than myself. We have had a wonderful and monogamous relationship for 13 years now. Yes this is a big age difference, but chemistry is chemistry and what we have together works on so many levels. I just wish that this film was available in Blu-ray format, but the picture quality is really great and it does not have black bars.

I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who is dating an older or younger man as they will relate to the film more than the 20 somethings will, unless they have older partners.

I found this movie to be sweet and funny. All the leads were endearing. A bit of nudity but nothing that distracts from the story. It has a nice pace to it and nothing seems rushed. These are the kind of movies that I enjoy the most.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful December 25, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
As a 50-year-old gay man, I could relate to the plights of the 40-year-old and 50-year-old characters in this movie. It's simply not easy aging in the gay community, and being older on the gay dating scene is particularly challenging. The criticisms that some Amazon reviewers have made of this film didn't hold true for me. The production values were remarkably strong for an Indie. There were at least six distinctly different locations for the action -- a Pilates studio, "Doug's" house, "Colton's" rental, "Jacob's" mountain cabin, "Derek's" house & patio, and "Evelyn's" kitchen. The gay male characters weren't particularly butch or femme, they were just guys. The one exception was the flamboyant comic relief provided by "Doug's" employee at the Pilates studio. The gratuitous full-frontal nudity of actor Mark Cirillo was a pleasant surprise, and made me look at him in a different light, having just seen him in another gay-themed indie this weekend. On balance, this film was a delightful way to spend a little time on Christmas afternoon. And, best of all, the story ended far differently than I expected. A delightfully unexpected conclusion was frosting on the cake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute & Fun March 4, 2013
By Solaris
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Would've loved to see more of the romance aspect, but I'll take what I can get with regard to gay films today. I had a good time with this film. Don't look for anything deep, just a light-hearted piece of entertainment. And exactly what I was looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars good to the last minutes February 21, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very good job by all the players. Each character added a new level of interest in the plot. It is difficult to decide who to root for success within the relation ship. In the end I think the right man got the job, in as much as he would meet the expectations of a husband rather than a lover.
