  • Summary: Eric lives for all things hockey. Now in his thirties, he's managed to turn his stint as an ex- Toronto Maple Leaf into a full-time gig as commentator for sports TV. He's living the dream! But when Eric's boyfriend Sam announces that they're to become temporary guardians of a young boy, Eric's comfortable world shatters. Enter Scot -- a recently orphaned, swishy 11-year-old sissy-of-a-boy -- and Eric's mirror opposite. Freaked out by Scot's 'joie de vivre,' Eric and Sam gently nudge Scot away from scented hand cream and all things pink, towards a more 'acceptable' pastime – hockey. But after Scot's disastrous first game, Eric begins to rethink the compromises he's made in his own life in order to be 'accepted.' (Regent Releasing) Expand

    Cavanagh, best known for the TV show "Ed," is terrific--as is young Bernett, who steals the show without hogging it.
  2. Has a sitcom format, but complex emotions and perceptions keep breaking through the surface in an engaging, thoughtful manner.
  3. 63
    A crowd-pleasing comedy that makes up for its formulaic, sitcom-ready premise with likable performances and an inviting sense of humor.
  4. 50
    This is territory previously covered in the French film "Ma Vie en Rose," which took a relatively more sophisticated view of both a child's self-expression and adults' discomfort over it.

    Why is Breakfast With Scot in theaters instead of set for broadcast on the Lifetime, Hallmark or ABC Family channels?
  6. Reviewed by: Jay Weissberg
    Suffused with the bargain-basement blandness of an Afterschool Special, Breakfast with Scot is the kind of gay-themed pic that won't ruffle the feathers of a granny in Manitoba, though it's bound to make more discerning auds groan.

    Watch this with full knowledge that it's not going to thrill, and it will provide pure pleasure in the character of Scot. Fresh, human, flawed, lovable, young actor Noah Bernett delivers a gem of a performance in a challenging role. Expand

    A gentle and playful comedy,the acting is solid,in addition to the main about Scot, the love scenes of two men is very romantic and simple .The kiss scene at the end of the movie from two dads is one scene worth the wait. Expand
