So, Unlike Most Everyone I Know|
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.
