Oy Vey! My Son is Gay! (2009) Film Review

When Shirley (Lainie Kazan) and Martin (Saul Rubinek) discover that their son, Nelson (John Lloyd Young) is gay, they refuse to belief it, attempting to find any clumsy way to convince him otherwise.

I blame Covid-19 and our long time in lockdown for watching this film. It is a terrible film in so many different ways, least of all that this was made so recently. If this had been made in the nineties, I think it still would have been panned as having out-of-date views, offensively stereotypical depictions of members of the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as a variety of races, and very lacking humour. I’m not sure that I can say this is the worst film I’ve ever seen, but I’m not sure that I can’t.
