PETER AND NICK ARE JUST FRIENDS. PETER’S FAMILY KNOWS BETTER.
Social media strategist Peter (Michael Urie) is headed home for Christmas together with his best friend (Philemon Chambers), intending to tell his family that they’re a couple… but his mom has already set up a blind date for him. The first gay holiday romantic comedy that Netflix made has likable characters and avoids some of the worst sugary traps of the genre. A cut above the typical Netflix princess fantasies, but far from daring or innovative; safe, formulaic and family-friendly fun for unadventurous straight audiences.
2021-U.S. VOD. 99 min. Color. Directed by Michael Mayer. Cast: Michael Urie (Peter), Philemon Chambers (Nick), Luke Macfarlane (James), Barry Bostwick, Jennifer Robertson, Madison Brydges… Jennifer Coolidge, Kathy Najimy.
