It's old news that American queer cinema is splintered between movies with serious artistic and intellectual aspirations and those which, like the bulk of contemporary pop culture, are aggressively mediocre.

Occasionally amateurish but sweet-natured and thoroughly enjoyable.

The material eventually falls apart, caught between the mechanics of an out-of-the-closet farce and a tender story of personal and familial acceptance. The festivities kick off with a hearty ho-ho-ho. They end with a disconcerting no-no-no.

a kindhearted and very low impact coming out tale with only the slightest bit of angst getting in the way of the feel good vibe

Audience Reviews for Make the Yuletide Gay

Cute and Funny. The script and situations are over the top, but it's a lot of harmless fun. There are many lines which have sexual innuendos, the writers couldn't let it go. It was nice seeing Gates McFadden make an appearance; I hope there truly is a sequel to show what happens next Christmas at the other boy's estate; hey, if they can keep making these silly Fockers movies, why not?
