Great Movie
2 July 2007 | by yaron-yehudaSee all my reviews

I'm seeing the bad ratings this movie got, and I can't believe it. I guess those people either don't have any artistic taste, or they simply rate this movie without seeing it.

How can one not love this original comedy. The writing is extraordinary, the directing is great, and the acting is fantastic.

This movie is unique, and is a rare find in today's films.

I loved every minute of it, and I think it delivers a great message, from start to finish. Very original work. Two thumbs up!

I also want to add that the plot is very original. The subject of being gay in a traditional family is chilling. And the writer delivers it in a sweet, funny way.
