5.0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL!!! June 7, 2011
Format:DVD
I pre-ordered this directly from the Writer/Producer a while back, and received it about a month ago. I've already watched it 4 times. This is a really great movie; it's not only funny and a bit over the top, but also has an important message to present: Be who you are and love life. "Baby, I was born this way!" Very Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Southern gay HOOT! June 9, 2011
Format:DVD
SO delightful to watch a Southern Mom and her spinster sister do an attitude 180 when they find out their only son/nephew is gay. First they deny and then they try...to get him a boyfriend..with all the mint julip Southern charm at their disposal. And it works!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Will Love This Film! June 7, 2011
Format:DVD
I saw this film at a limited edition screening, and laughed non-stop through the whole thing. It is heartwarming and funny and is a must-see for everyone, as it addresses some of the touchy issues of homophobia, religious intolerance, and ex-gay ministries. You will want to watch it over and over again.

You Should Meet My Son is one of the funniest and nicest gay comedy I have recently seen, probably the best of 2011. I'm quite surprise this movie was not more on the word of mouth of my friends, since it's not easy to do satira on gay themes with such touch of elegance. True, the storyline is excessive, but that is what satira is.

Brian is 30 years old and in the closet, or at least he is when he goes to friday dinner to his mother's home. He has a steady relationship with Dennis, who pretends to be his roommate. Brian's mother, Mae, is so out of the real world that she doesn't even consider the idea his son is gay until one of the candidate girl she brought to him doesn't enlighting her.

Here Mae's character, so as that of her sister Rose, turn into wonderful when they set out to find Brian the perfect husband, above all when his relationship with Dennis ends up in a bad way.

This is truly a movie about Mae and Rose more than Brian. I really like how Mae, not only understands what is better for his son Brian, but also tries to help other young boys, like she probably would have done for her son if he had the courage to tell her.

The supporting characters are all pretty good, I love the leather-couple, and Chase, the chosen husband, is cute with that big brownie eyes, and strange to say, he is even better when he is dressed ;-)

Aside from the jokes, this is a movie whose only fault is to try to do its best with the little budget it had. The plot is very good, the actors above the average, and the few sets carefully chosen. Sure, it shows the limited budget, but most of the time you forget it, involved as you are in the adventures of two middle-age women in search of true love... for their dear boy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A FANTASTIC FEEL GOOD COMEDY August 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At long last we have a gay film that is beautifully photographed and not a shakey camera in site (very very rare for most gay films).It doesn't pretend to be anything original, story wise and may even be silly at times but at least the writers know how to write comedy ( something rare for USA films).The film is one continuous laugh after another and the cast are superb.When was the last time you saw a gay film where they actually had an ensemble of very talented people who could act?. If you are feeling down in the dumps then see this great film as it is a great feel good film that you will want to see over and over again.The entire cast and crew must be proud of their achievment in giving us such a fantastic comedy.I have been so disappointed with gay movies for a long time.Nice to know that this film gives me faith in the fact that they can make a great gay film if they have the talent like this film has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucy and Ethel find a husband for little Ricky November 8, 2011
By SteveA
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Need a movie that makes you feel good? This is it! Gay comedy at its very best. You will laugh out loud at the "not so funny" painful trials and tribulations of being gay. This movie is packed full of stereotypes and cliches from both sides of the fence in a hilariously entertaining presentation. Imagine Lucy and Ethel find out little Ricky is gay and they decide to get him a husband so he won't have to go through life alone and unhappy. Wicked.

4.0 out of 5 stars highly enjoyable gay friendly entertainment July 29, 2011
Format:DVD
True to the DVD cover art, "You Should Meet My Son" doesn't masquerade as being anything other than light and fun entertainment, but it is also honest and passionate. In brief, a young gay man has tried far too hard to keep his sexuality secret from his mother and aunt - to the point where his partner leaves for greener pastures. Brian's mother and her sister discover the big gay truth and quickly dispense with their culturally acquired bigotry. They then set out on a mission to find heartbroken Brian a suitable gay male partner - taking a crash course in gay community diversity and etiquette in the process. However, thankfully, things are not that simple (and only marginally overladen with stereotypes).

Keith Hartman does a wonderful job with the script - keeping things fresh, lively and relevant. Hartman also ought to take a deep bow as director in his first feature film - and he happily gives plenty of due credit to the talented crew he assembled to make this film look consistently beautiful and interesting, and to also sound wonderful (especially, as we learn from the commentary tracks, in quite challenging circumstances).

The editing is particularly praiseworthy - my award goes to Donna Matthewson. The slightly surreal colours remind me very much of the UK original 1999 Queer As Folk series (NB: the cinematrogaphic quality is much better in this film - no doubt due in part to the advancements in digital technology).

The DVD extras are valuable - including Keith's short films in opposition to Proposition 8 (which excluded same sex couples from legal marriage in California).
