Single All The Way: A LGBTQ+ Romance
There’s always a comfort in watching romantic comedies that feel familiar and known. It is almost like tracing the lines on your palm that you know exists but, you still feel it to reassure yourself. In the era of thrillers and dark comedies, it is difficult to find a good quality feel-good movie that does not make you cringe your nose or appal you with graphic erotica. During winters, especially Christmas, you need the safety net of cashmere to fall back on in the form of quality, consumable and, sometimes even excellently made, romantic comedies.
We meet Peter, a romantic who has gotten his heartbroken time and again, only to always be “the single one” at home during Christmas. His best friend and roommate, Nick is the only person he can fall back on. However, irrespective of what everyone says, Peter and Nick both claim how it isn’t romantic at all. So, Peter’s mother sets him up on a blind date during Christmas week which turns out better than expected. But, the rest of the family won’t give in as they try to put Peter and Nick together and make them spend time to realise how they have been in love all along.
But will our lovely duo ever understand? Or, will Peter pick his blind date, James who he seems to be really growing on him? Well, the movie is set right out for us to find out.
This LGBTQ+ romance is so perfectly done that it warms your heart and soul. Michael Urie is cute and confused with the right amount of funny. Philemon Chambers is the perfect best friend being a 10 out of 10 on both looks and love. The family is hilarious with their own cute plans to pit the best friends together and, Jennifer Coolidge is all herself from 2 Broke Girls to White Louts- funny! All of these factors, making up for an adorable little Christmas romance that makes you laugh at times and go “aww” during the other times.
