Sooo I know calling this the super gay movie review of the week is misleading.
This should be called the super gay movie review of the year… the decade… the first time in a really freaking long time.
Now if I was on top of my lezzie game I would have seen this around the holidays. But… I wasn’t. I was traipsing around Spain, Portugal and Morocco with Momma K (blog about that coming down the pike).
It was cool seeing the faces of actors I knew… if I only knew them by their faces. I was in, I was pumped. I was looking for a good laugh.
looks around and shrugs It definitely wasn’t something about Mary shrugs again
Plot Snapshot: In the closet lesbian brings home her girlfriend for the first time on Thanksgiving… and hijinks ensue.
So this gives me Tyler Perry Studio teas. I mean I respect and appreciate that Jenna wrote, directed and starred in it. But… I also wish she hadn’t written, directed, and starred in it.
It felt like one of those movies where the hilarity was supposed to be in the chaos… it just fell a little flat. I found myself fast forwarding through parts that didn’t move the story along. The veteran actors that played the parents and grandparents gave us some great moments. However, the rookie acting of others were just too stark against the vets. They weren’t bad, but just not good.
Overall, I feel meh about the whole thing. Did I hate it? No. Am I angry that I spent 90 mins (minus the parts I skipped) of my life watching it? Nope. Would I watch it again? Nah.
Now if you want to hear about my own coming out story, I’m all yours. Check out my post:Coming Out Redux… A Holiday Story
