This movie completely charmed me. I bought it because I'm a sucker for anything Canada/hockey-related, but loved it because of the characters, especially Eric (Tom Cavanagh) and Scot (Noah Bernett).
Eric and Sam (Ben Shenkman) are a happy, low-key gay couple. Eric is an ex-Toronto Maple Leaf tough guy with a new career as a sportscaster, and generally keeps his orientation a secret except from close friends and family. Sam, a lawyer, would be more comfortable being out publicly, but humors Eric. Their lives are turned upside down when they are given temporary guardianship of "Sam's brother's dead ex-girlfriend's son," Scot.
11-year-old Scot is more flamboyant than either of the men, favoring pink sweater vests, charm bracelets, sparkly headbands and singing Christmas carols at the top of his lungs when he's upset.
Eric ends up being the one to (reluctantly) spend more time with Scot, by virtue of having the more flexible work schedule, and his...
i was lucky enough to be in toronto last fall when this movie was released in theaters...i was so impressed i went to see it three times! unlike most "gay" movies, this one is super clean, you wont be embarrassed to show it to your grandmother! the story is heartwarming, funny, sometimes sad, but very uplifting, shows how opening your heart to change can make life better for everyone around you. TOTALLY different adapatation from the book...i must say i enjoyed the movie better then the book! the screenplay should be published as the updated version! this is a movie the gay community should be very proud of....there is a lesson in this film for everyone who watches it! WONDERFUL, CLEAN, & A SUPER "holiday" type movie for the gay community!
I fell in love with this movie long before the first viewing ended. The story is a bit formulaic at times, so events are predictable, but the characters are so well portrayed, and situations so unique, that it feels fresh.
Eric and Sam are a happy, childless, gay couple. Eric was once a professional hockey player for the Toronto Maple Leafs (this is the first gay-themed film where a professional sports team allowed the use of their logo). After a serious injury, he retired as a player, settled in with Sam, and got a job as a sportscaster on TV. Eric keeps his relationship and orientation a secret, except from family and friends, and Sam humors him. One day, they find out that Sam's brother Billy gained custody of 11-year-old Scot when the Scot's mother died of an overdose. Billy had dated the mother (Julia) previously, and Julia had never updated her will. Since Billy is nowhere to be found (he's horribly irresponsible), Child Services places Scot with Sam and Eric for a...
