Nic and Jules had the perfect family, until they met the man who made it all possible.

This is pretty different than most movies I like (maybe not on the surface, but I could argue it). It got stellar reviews, which piqued my interest. Really, the only reason I wanted to watch it was for Mark Ruffalo. I have a minor crush on him. He usual plays these sweet, caring, under-appreciated characters and I just fell in love with that.
Nic and Jules are a gay couple that have raised a family together, each of them giving birth to a kid thanks to a sperm donor. When Joni turns 18, her brother Laser convinces her to find out who their dad is. Then they meet Paul, who is hardly what they expected.
I watched this with my mom…and that was a little awkward at times. But I think I liked it more than she did.
It wasn’t bad. It’s just different than what I usually watch, so I didn’t like it as much as someone else might. But I liked the way the story was told. It was pretty interesting, their family dynamic. Each character had something different about them that made them stand out. They were distinct.
I guess I also wanted to watch this for Josh Hutcherson, who will be playing Peeta Mellark in the Hunger Games movie coming out next year (*SQUEE!*). He was in a lot of movies as a kid, but I wanted to see a more recent one for a better comparison. And I think he’ll be a great Peeta.
Man. Are they adorable or what? To very dashing men…
Ahem. Wow, I really have to st0p doing that.
