| Exploring the motive for bashing in an amusing way.
Other than D'Onofrio's character looking really out of place with his date, I thought the film was very funny. Eileen Brennan is a riot as D'Onofrio's mother who utters the phrase that titles the film. D'Onofrio, one of today's best actors, is very intense in his role as an angry gay cop who just might consider himself outside the law. The teenager brought to dinner keeps the "deer in headlights" look throughout the film. Funnier might have been putting Seth Green into that role and letting him have some input into the character. However, I believe this short was filmed well prior to its release date of 1997, and Mr. Green's comedic talent was not as well known during filming as it is now. Thusly, his role is extremely brief.

This film is likely a shock for all the straight people who are used to seeing us gay people in "Will and Grace" type roles, and don't expect us to show up in more macho professions or looking like Vincent D'Onofrio. It's also probably too close to the bone for some "straight" men who lash out at gays, but take as many legitimate opportunities to get physical and "bond" with other men as possible. Great work.
