is a new Canadian movie about a straight gay couple. One partner is a gay sportscaster who used to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs and his professional partner who end up taking care of a flamboyant little boy.

This is a mainstream film that got permission from the very macho NHL and Toronto Maple Leafs to use their logo on a gay hockey player. very very cool!

Don Cherry must be choking on his morning coffee as reads about this movie.

Good on the NHL and good on the Toronto Maple Leafs. Mind you if the main character were flaming gay characters the NHL would not have given the green light quite as easily.

Gay hockey player movie ... the Canadian Brokeback Mountain!!!!

In order for it to be the Canadian Brokeback Mountain, one of the characters would have to be beaten to death. I hope this movie is more upbeat then that.

"Straight gay couple" refers to an outwardly looking hetero couple who are really gay.

I think it means a gay couple in the closet.

quote:
Eric (Tom Cavanagh) and Sam (Ben Shenkman) are a very straight gay Toronto couple who are asked to care for orphaned 11-year-old Scot (Noah Bernett). All the gay fears of raising a red-blooded Canadian boy are run up the flag until Scot actually makes his entrance. This particular red-blooded Canadian boy is a total flamer, Boy George division.

They were one gay straight couple and then they met Scott.

I kinda like that turn of phrase - 'straight gay couple' so I used it earlier. Here's the actual article of where I first saw it.

Thankfully there is no gay character dying in this movie. Ok so it's the Canadian Brokeback Mountain but without the sad ending and without the sex! I don't think the NHL would give its blessings to a gay sexually explicit movie .... just yet!!!!
