Fish out of water comedy that is more cringeworthy than genuinely hilarious, there are moments when the farce almost feels forced. Despite this, there is still a heart warming message behind it all, and moments of wonderful comedy that make You Should Meet My Son! I a fun film that anybody with a relatively open mind can enjoy.
While not a high budget film with any resemblance of known actors, You Should Meet My Son is a surprisingly upbeat and well written art house style movie with a few comedic twists thrown in for good measure.
The actors have been well cast and seem comfortable in their roles which makes for quite a realistic and eye opening adventure into the gay world not only for the characters but everyone watching.
A movie that can be easily dismissed, I wouldn't be surprised that it didn't even make it into the cinemas. However predictable the storyline may be, it is still a feel good movie for a week night. Plenty of comedy to go around in such a low budget film.
