A simple brotherly joke goes hilariously awry in director Stewart Wade's zany tale of mistaken sexual identity. Todd's brother Barry wants to help his single sibling out by setting him up on a blind date. While all signs lead to a perfect match, it soon becomes obvious that Barry is having a little fun at his brother's expense when the Kelly in question turns out not to be a beautiful woman, but a homosexual male. Upon realizing that they have been duped by Todd's mischievous brother, the unlikely couple soon forms a warm friendship while concocting an elaborate scheme to one-up the unrepentant prankster. When Barry sees Todd and Kelly holding hands soon thereafter, he becomes convinced that his brother is, in fact, gay, and phones the pair's mother to break the news. As Todd's mother begins to see his son's disdain for sports and love of film as clear signs of his homosexuality that she has somehow managed to overlook, she determines to show her son that she will love him no matter what his lifestyle. But Todd's mother isn't the only one who is now convinced that her son is gay, and as suspicions begin to abound in his close-knit social circle, the hapless "homosexual" soon begins to wonder if there isn't some truth to the rumors after all. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Really Great Cast, Movie Is Just OK by shiftless December 18, 2007 - 12:34 AM PST
This movie had it's origins in a short film, and was recast and expanded into a feature. And it feels that way a bit in several places. Also, this movie had a serious dead weight on it in the form of the score music between scenes. Such cheese and sonic cliche was very distracting and I had to try hard and ignore it. Soundtrack music also not to my taste, but I digress.

The cast is really great and they have a lot of fun with the dialog and characters. I laughed quite a lot in this movie but all the best ones come from scene-stealing Sally Kirkland as the protagonist's raving basket-case of a mother. She alone is worth watching this movie for. Jonathan Bray is a bit wooden as the leading man and does an OK job of holding the film up, but at the climax of the film, I did not believe him one bit. Deborah Gibson is in this movie(!). Was it a coincidence that all of the movie previews on the DVD extras had gay themes and also really terrible score music? Anyway, there's a bunch of really funny and talented actors in this movie, so I say watch it for that.
