Comedy starring Keith Jordan as Gunn, an out-and-proud gay college student who steps back into the closet in order to spend Christmas with his eccentric Midwestern parents (Derek Long and Kelly Keaton). But things get tricky when his boyfriend Nathan (Adamo Ruggiero) turns up unexpectedly at his family home after his holiday plans fall through. As pressure mounts from all sides, can Gunn manage to come out before the truth does?

Let's face it, this is a niche movie. Niche audience, niche season, niche theme. I suppose that's what makes it so appropriate. I watched this with bells still jingling, and loved it.
It makes no promise to deliver Oscar performances, but the characters are realistic. The plot has no clever twists, in fact it verges on predictable. Some of the acting is a little wooden, but all these small forgivable flaws aside, it does what it sets out to do. It's easy to be forgiving, the lead characters (Nathan and Gunn) make a cute couple and you can't help willing everything to work out for them. Loved Gunn's goofy mum, and stoner dad.
There's an underdeveloped plot line - would love to have seen more of Gates MacFadden (ST:TNG Dr Beverly Crusher).
All said and done, it's money well spent.
