A LAUGH A SECOND

by ThomsonGonzales on 12/13/2002

We have seen this movie showing in Palm Springs 5 times and have waited for it to come out on DVD! It has to be one of the BEST MOVIES of the year. It has been showing everyday in Palm Springs, CA. for over a year and still fills up the theater! You have to see this movie more than once to catch all the side spliting jokes! The actors are GREAT! I am sure that every family in America can relate to at least one of the family members! The only reason it got a R rating is because it has a couple of GAY parts in it. It is not done rudly. If it was the same with Heterosexuals it would be a PG-13! Don't be put off by the rating. You will not be disappointed if you get this movie. I am getting a few more for gifts for people that have not had the oppertunity to see this movie in their cities. Read More

Laughter through Tears

by rebecca on 4/17/2003

Hopefully people can somewhat feel the pain and the humor with which this movie places so candidly in our laps. I can relate coming from a southern family and having a gay son who has suffered a great deal because of the `word`. My husband and I laughed so much, sometime through tears. It was a wonderful experience. We then were fortunate enough to also see the play. Do not miss this. Read More
