Wedding Wars

Did anyone see this movie last night on A&E? It was great! Not great like it changed the world in two short hours; but great in a way that it illuminated a light on a very serious problem here in USA. Bigotry. Wedding Wars starring John Stamos (absolutely adorable in this film) who plays a gay wedding planner (redundant) that goes on strike when the governor of Maine tries to pass a bill restricting marriage to a man & a woman. Now we all know how sucessful that recipe for marriage has been. What is the divorce rate again? Anyway, this movie although dealing with this serious subject matter in a very "sit-com" style actually had some great insight and brought up the lame arguments people have against gay marriage. And these anti-equality people are all dumb or just plain bigotted. The story is about two brothers one (the gay) is planning the other brothers 'straight wedding.' When the Governor of Maine attempts to pass this bigotted law of marriage being between a man and a woman exclusively. The gay brother goes on strike; and in turn all gays go on strike. First in Maine then throughout the country. It was beautiful, unrealistic to a degree, but beautiful. Everyone should see this film, it plays again this Saturday (December 16, 2006) at 10pm. I urge you all to record it. I love rooting for the good guys. And no you unChristian, Christian fundamentalists - it's not you. It never was.

y'know...i don't think it's THAT unrealistic...if we all actually UNITED and DID "go on strike" maybe we'd get the respect/equality that we're entitled to.
it sure beats sitting on our hands waiting for people to decide things for us...

I don't understand - how did the gays "go on strike?" What did we do/not do? (Sorry, I am lame and don't have cable.)

I didn't see the flick, but heard about it. I do love the idea of JS kissing another man on camera first of all. Second I like the idea of the flick, I just worry bout the old stereotypes. Let me guess, those who went on strike were wedding planners (natch), florists, hairdressers and the like. I'm all for gay films that are witty and have something to say, but... I guess it is like the oddity of having a 'best actress' catergory. Shouldn't we just have a best person? Hmmm.
