Movie Info

A closeted Chicago architect wrestles with the prospect of coming out to his Irish Catholic brothers following the death of their parents in Stolen Summer writer/director Pete Jones' affectionate family comedy. His entire live, Bobby Riley (Jones) has been living a lie. The product of a traditional Irish-Catholic family, Bobby is a typical guy who likes beer and loves sports. In fact, the only notable difference between Bobby and your average Chicago Irish-Catholic is that Bobby happens to be gay. For years, the only person who knew Bobby's well-guarded secret was his sister Maggie (Julie R. Pearl) - a no-nonsense lawyer with an open mind and no time for secrets. Though his live-in boyfriend Andy (Michael McDonald) longs for the day he will be able to express his love openly, Bobby insists on projecting a heterosexual image with a little assistance from longtime lesbian gal pal Carly (Dana Gilhooley). On the heels of their father's death, Maggie attempts to convince Bobby that the time has come to tell his brothers the truth about his lifestyle. The only problem is that Bobby's brothers aren't simply straight - they're fairly narrow as well. Of course prankish Luke (Nathan Fillion) and unstable Connor (Stoney Westmoreland) could probably come to grips with the truth, but what about Jack (Dev Kennedy)? The eldest sibling and a devoted clergyman, Jack would most certainly have an adverse reaction to such a life-changing announcement. When Bobby determines to reveal his secret and becomes suddenly tongue tied at the last minute, it's up to outspoken sister Maggie to set the record straight whether Bobby likes it or not.

Audience Reviews for Outing Riley

Project Greenlight's Pete Jones makes another movie... This time starring him... And NATHAN FILLION!!! Nathan Fillion is worth watching this alone. Alas, the rest of the movie isn't that good. Pete is still rough around the edges of filmmaking, his constant use of freeze frame and voice over is awful, but overall pretty entertaining.

Great movie. I laughed so much during this movie. It was also a nice surprise to see Nathan Fillion in this movie. Had no idea he was in it. A a word to the wise, you get to see Nathan's butt in this movie also!

It's okay. A bit silly and these characters don't really have much for any of us to relate to. But it's mindless fun.
