Movie Reviews

This film Busts the doors open!
Tbrak | San Diego, CA USA | 02/13/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What an amazing film. So often situations present themselves that deter us from our goals and aspirations. The characters in this film tell a believable and striking story about how love and passion vanquish doubt. It is also an undeniably refreshing microcosm demonstrating the relevant double-edged sword that homosexuality is in society."

"This is a great film about family,acceptance, and love. The characters are real, people you know, family and friends. Importantly it is all about acceptance, of who we are, what we can do and where we belong."

""Ready? Ok!"

Mom and Son

Amos Lassen

"Ready? Ok!" is a surprising little film that steals the heart. It's a poignant comedy about a single mom trying to understand her young son's obsession with dresses, dolls, and cheerleading. She is also faced with the nature of family and when her father dies and her wayward brother returns home, she and her brother and son are forced into facing themselves and finding out what a family really is. Aside from the mother facing her own issues and fears, she has to look at the early indications that her son may be a homosexual.
Andy Dowd (Carrie Preston) is an over-caffeinated single mother who lives in a world of chaos. Living in Normal Heights she is having a tough time as a single mom. Joshua, her ten year old son, is smart and happy but she worries that he is not on track. She is called to the Mother Superior's office at Joshua's Catholic School all too often and Andy is off on a tangent. He wants to be on the all-girl cheerleading squad, he regards Maria Von Trapp as his most influential role model, he loves French braids and this is not what little boys do.
Here is a new take on the American family and Andy is forced into stripping away all of her illusions so that she can find peace for her and Joshua. Charlie, the gay next-door neighbor tries to help and he gets Andy to turn her focus inward and embrace her son's individuality.
Quirky but OK

"There's not a lot to this DVD, and it IS very predictable. However, it is interesting enough as an exploration of gender expectations and associated issues without going to an extreme of repression or the far end of license."
