Storyline

The hockey career of former Toronto Maple Leaf Eric McNally, who was known as a tough enforcer, came to an end with a shoulder injury. He is now a sportscaster. Except to his assistant Nula, what he hasn't told his work colleagues is that he is gay and that he is in a long term relationship with a sports lawyer named Sam. Eric feels that he can't be openly gay as an ex-hockey player or as a public figure still associated with professional hockey. Eric and Sam's life is turned upside down when they take temporary custody of Scot Latour, whose drug addict mother, Julie, recently passed away from a drug overdose. Julie assigned custody of Scot to her ex-boyfriend, Billy, who is Sam's deadbeat brother. Sam is certain that Billy will eventually come for Scot when he learns that Julie's insurance money also comes with custody. Having only had Julie's influence in his life, Scot is a flamboyant adolescent, who wears make-up, a feather boa and his mother's charm bracelet, and who loves ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The character, Eric McNally, is depicted as a former Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player. This movie received permission by the NHL, and the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey organization to use jerseys, clips, and other items relating to that club. It is the first time in major professional sports history that such permission has been given. This caused some controversy due to the character's homosexuality. See more »

Wonderful comedy scores a goal!
5 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having seen the preview for this, I was intrigued and decided to give it a try. It turned out to be yet another example of why I prefer films made outside of the U.S. The writing was first-rate and hilarious, and the performances were uniformly brilliant. Tom Cavanaugh is one of the most watchable comedic talents anywhere, Ben Shenkman (who reminds me a lot of Harold Ramis) was equally superb, and young actors Noah Bernett (as Scot) and Dylan Everett (Ryan) really shined in their roles as well. There are plenty of laughs and poignant moments in equal measure, with the underlying theme of accepting and loving others for who they are. Hockey is a major focus in the film, but it can be enjoyed by those who aren't familiar with the game. Aside from a few instances of salty language (including a couple "f-bombs"), it's family-friendly and the issues involved are handled with tact and gentle humor. Highly recommended.
