Movie Review: Friends and Family

I have no idea how I missed this when it came and never heard of it again. This is a great gay screwball comedy. It's about two guys who are retired U.S. Army rangers who work for the mafia as hitmen and are an openly gay couple. Everything is about their life with their giant flat in New York City is fine until Stephen's parents decide to visit and their fake story about being an openly gay catering couple will fall apart. This is exacerbated by the fact that Stephen knows that his father is secretly an undercover FBI agent.

The whole plot revolves around hiding an essential aspect of one's identity for one's family and how even our best plans can be foiled by the need to come clean about who we really are. This is a great light hearted date movie.
