This movie plays right out of the fantasy list of closeted, gay middle aged fathers. The father of a
straight son has a fling with his son’s gay best friend.
Guess what? It’s not always such a good idea to take fantasy into real life. Based upon this film,
it’s not always a good idea to take fantasy into reel life, either.
The film is characterized by mediocre writing performed with all the believability that such material
deserves. The problem is that it takes itself seriously and seems to believe that it is delivering a profound
message about second chances.
The major strength of the film is the scenery around the Davidson family’s summer, lake home.
Consequently, I recommend watching this film, if you must watch it at all, with the sound off. Enjoy the
pretty pictures and don’t concern yourself with what you’re missing.
Oh yeah, it’s in color, which for this film is good.
