Humour often silly and somewhat mean-spirited, but Jack Gore is charming.

The troubled boy showing up on the doorstep of a wealthy gay couple is veering on cliche at this point, but the film was still entertaining. Erasmus is a celebrity chef in a long term relationship with his production assistant Paul, though he has a son from a brief "experimentation" with heterosexuality, who in turn begets the grandson at the center of the story. It has a few pretty good jokes, but you can see them coming from a mile away. The plot is rather predictable as well. The product placement for Taco Bell is distractingly egregious.
