Audience Reviews for Mulligans
Tyler's college buddy (Chase) spends the summer at Tyler's family cottage. Over the summer, Chase finally informs his friend that he is gay. Later in the summer, Tyler's father decides he is gay as well. Not only does Tyler have to come grips with have a gay best friend, but the family has to decide how to live with a gay dad.
Wonderful film despitte the imperfect acting from Charlie David, it has a well written script, well casted cast. Seem a bit too cheesy and comic to bring out the true message. It's a story about finding a second chance in your life to start over, as the title suggested. Mulligans is a golf term used to describe a second chance for the player to hit again. Golf played an important role in the film, from the very beginning, we are introduced to all the characters: Stepford wife, Girl who is too mature for her age, womanizer, shy artist and closeted father. I really enjoyed the dialogues and the use of camera shots sequences, very cleverly done.
I watched "Mulligans" on Logo channel today, and, it was pretty decent for a gay themed flick. However, they could have used a better title. Mulligans sounds way too much like the name of a gay bar, then a story about love. Also, the summary of the movie seemed a bit exaggerated, as I never noticed anyone "Lusting" after anyone. The story is more about a guy who spends the summer with his best friends family. He comes out to his friend, to a not so surprising conclusion. Then there is the hunky dad, who is supposedly the one lusting after his son's best friend, but, you never notice any lusting going on. The father learns that the best friend has come out to his son, and then finds that he needs to do some closet cleaning as well. It then goes on from there with each role expressing their like or dislike of the events that have taken place. Then Son seems to go on to hate everyone around him, as if he they have been playing a dirty trick on him, and a little girl that ends up being a lot smarter than everyone thinks. I think the movie could have ended better for all the roles involved. It seems like almost everyone was left hanging, including the audience. But, what made that kind of decent is that it was more close to reality then those "everybody is having a good time" films. It was a decent film.
