Fantastic !!! :-)By Thomas Murray from Orsett, essex, UK , 01 Jan 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Wow, really enjoyed this movie, and highly recommend it, let me say though that I am not usually one for scoring gay themed movies highly, just because of the theme, but this deserved 5 out of 5.
The setting, the acting, the story are all wonderful, the only let down is the unbelieveble ending (for me) but I guess it is feasible.
Get it, watch it, enjoy it !!

Gets better after a poor startBy Al_UK (5 reviews) , 01 Dec 2011Improved as the film progressed. The start was clunky and not very well acted. There is a story that emerges and the characters begin to lose their stereotypicality. Not bad at all
Handsome leads and decent plot, worth it on a rainy dayBy a customer , 07 Aug 2011Handsome leads and a decent plot make this watchable ... but the mother just can not act to save herself ... that is the one disappointment with the film is the lack of acting ability of the mother ... it puts any scene she's in off-kilter. The father is well played ... and provides for an interesting, believeable ending.
Take your mulligan... and watch something elseBy LondonNick (17 reviews) from Brighton , 09 May 2011Oh dear. The three male leads (son Tyler, college buddy Chase and Tyler's Dad) were so camp I assumed from the outset they were all gay - it took a while to figure out that Tyler and Chase were just buddies. Pretty wooden acting, poor script, golfing theme was lame, generally rather hackneyed.
'Boys on Film' is a much more interesting series of short movies, or 'Shelter' if you want a coming-out/coming-of-age movie that has more to offer than just good teeth and firm abs.
A Really Enjoyable FilmBy a customer from Wigan, Lancashire, England , 20 Jan 2011There were mixed reviews concerning this film, but I decided to give it a go anyway.
It's a great story, just not a brilliant film.
The actors are all pleasant to watch, although a bit wooden at times, but then again, some of the most memorable films of all time are just that way.
Worth renting !!!
Abstract title should not put you offBy deanhoxton (23 reviews) from London, UK , 09 Jan 2011The title is a little bizarre - although, having watched the film, it is understandable.
This is a film about second chances in life.
How we go through life mostly as a consequence of past actions. And when that action is not one that had come from one's heart, it would lead to a path that could be blinding, albeit with light.
I like this film.
It's a clever little film that questions whether lying to oneself for the sake of upholding society's expectations should be encouraged.
Of course, there is also the bigger question of whether society should ever impose a pre-conceived notion of how people should live their lives.
Of course these are not necessarily apparent in the film. The film could be enjoyed as a piece of family drama.
Many parts of this film is funny - but many is also heartbreaking. It never really go into melodrama, cliche territory - which is a good thing in my eyes.
Of course it helps that everyone in this film is good looking. And Thea Gill is great in this.
