So, Unlike Most Everyone I Know|
I thought it was a pleasant day at the movies with my daughter, but that was about it. I was glad that the story kept me interested enough not to be sad about it being Heath's last movie.
On the subject of movies, I seem to recall reading some comments by you about "I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry". The comments I vaguely recall were the reason I watched the movie, to see how much I agreed with them and to see what my impressions were of it. Having now seen this movie, I wanted to re-read them, but couldn't find them. If such comments exist, could you point me to them or email me with them? If not, I apologise for apparently mentally filing under your name just because it had to do with reactions to homosexuality.

I never heard of that movie, so it must have been someone else. Was it good? What's it about?
No, it wasn't particularly good, in my estimation.
It's about a widowed firefighter who neglected to name his children as his beneficiaries after his wife died. He waited past the time limit permitted by the city/insurance company/whatever and finds out he can basically only change the beneficiary if he gets remarried. So he convinces his best friend to pose as his gay domestic partner so he can name the friend as beneficiary and trust him to look after the kids.
It's cliche-ridden and to me mildly offensive. I'm glad I rented it to see what the fuss was about, but I'm also very glad I didn't see it at the movies and contribute to its profit.

It sounds totally stupid. And completely out of touch with the law, too.
