Goofs

This is just one example of how poorly this film was made. The continuity is totally missing starting with the scene where mom is lying on the couch looking at Gay Scholarship results on her phone. Her hair is red, has no brightly-colored streaks in it, and she's wearing a blue t-shirt with large colored hearts on it. Her nail polish is black. In the next few frames, a close-up of the phone screen with the search results, her nails are pink, and the background shows some sort of patterned fabric that isn't in the wide shot. The next scene has her hurrying to her son's room, where her hair is back to brown with brightly-colored streaks, she's wearing a plaid, button-up shirt, and her nails are either polish-free or she's wearing clear polish.

Minor continuity glitches are amusing. These are so glaring as to make the movie more difficult to watch. Knowing that the creators couldn't have cared less, why should I care about this film?

Dumbest Movie I have ever seen.
13 September 2014 | by talesofterror5See all my reviews

This film is so stupid.I mean where does one begin? The mother (though the actress was really good) was plagued by a terrible script that made her attachment to her son seem like a reverse Oedipus Complex. Besides that this movie is cringe inducing with it's "gay humor" that doesn't really come off as funny but more unintentionally homophobic. You see only two gay teens (who are side characters in a movie trying to sell itself as an LGBT genre movie I might add)who act like the most stereotypical cartoons of real people ever made. The were kinda like the gay teens in high school that all the other gay teens don't like because they are stupid and obnoxious.If you are a gay like me it feels like a black guy watching a ministerial show. How this ever got a premiere at Frameline I will never know.
