Breakfast with Scot isn't much on originality, but it is sweet enough to overcome the most cynical skeptic.

It lacks the psychological realism of certain decent dramas and is too reliant on cheap pratfalls and Cavanagh's pinched approach to comedy.

What elevates way above the merely adequate script by Sean Reycraft based on the novel by Michael Downing and Lynd's competent direction is young Noah Bernett as Scot. This kid is so great, he could give kid actors a good name again.

A feel-good tale with undeniably good intentions, this Canadian comedy-drama doesn't really manage to convince on any level.

For its courage to address a ticklish subject with warmhearted humor, Breakfast With Scot, adapted from a novel by Michael Downing, deserves a light round of applause.

It's hardly the most gracefully made indie on the block -- more like a whole season of a sitcom crammed into one feature.

The smart performances, humorous dialogue and brisk pacing of Laurie Lynd's direction are all warm and friendly -- a nice antidote to misguided junk like I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.

The kind of gay-themed pic that won't ruffle the feathers of a granny in Manitoba, though it's bound to make more discerning auds groan.

Breakfast With Scot is not only amusing and heartfelt, but also genuinely thoughtful about life's many unexpected turns.

While Breakfast With Scot delivers the requisite humour -- not to mention some old-fashioned Christmas magic -- it stands apart for its hearty helping of food for thought.
