Breakfast With Scot
Eric and Sam have been in a committed relationship for four years. Eric's a former hockey player turned sportscaster and Sam's a sport's lawyer. But when Sam's adventure seeking brother Billy, takes a job in South America, his ex-girlfriend, Julie, is discovered dead from a drug overdose leaving her son Scot (not Billy's son) to Billy.
A gay couple whom manage to not actually say a nice thing to each other during the entire film have to look after a relatives child when his mum dies. The child absolutely steals the show as he plays the extremely camp, musical Christmas make up loving boy. The jock parent hates it and tries to make him straight, the other dad just moans a bit at the situation. It could have been so much better but its air light comedy and all of the good stuff comes from the kids - strange for a gay comedy that!
Drinking Game: Whenever the kids do something reminiscent of an early 90's Family Comedy (a genre long since muted)
Bottom Line: Cute, fluffy, very early 90's but not funny or entertaining enough to sell its message fully.
Una comedia ligera pero con fundamento. A veces peca de demasiado irreal en algunos puntos pero se deja ver con facilidad. Una joven pareja de gays no demasiado abiertos con su sexualidad ,en lo que al trabajo y más allá de sus amistades se refiere, tiene que hacerse cargo de un niño peculiar durante algunas semanas. El chico parece ser más gay que ellos mismos en cuanto a estereotipo, claro.
Y ellos tratarán de cambiarlo para que sobreviva a su infancia pero también para que ellos se encuentren más seguros..pero eso nunca lleva a nada bueno, verdad?
Ha sido una hora y media bastante agradable
The first time I happened to notice this movie was while I was channel surfing and wasn't really going watch anything. Maybe that is all it took to make me like it: I wasn't expecting anything. And still with only one scene it stole my attention.
The movie is very ordinary yet spiced with an unusual character type. It doesn't show off with big twists but enjoys the little things. I was even surprised by the lack of gayness (In a good way since I feel that most of the gay themed movies are made for curious straight people) and the characters' sexuality is only there to hold the plot together, not to rub it in audience's face.
1.5 out of 5 (C-)
Loved this. A rather straight (closeted) gay couple have to look after Scot, after his mother dies. Scot is outrageously camp and is just the most amazing character I've seen in a film for a long time. It's obvious where the story is going to go and who is going to change and accept themselves more, but the journey is just a joy to watch. I love Scot. I wish more "gay" themed films were like this. Very rare.
Bad, bad, bad... Just stay away....
