One of the gay holiday movies, with a happy ending, Single All The Way felt like someone looked at my personal life, and decided to turn it into best case scenario. Love it!
If anyone deserves a relaxing, feel-good holiday movie, it’s queer people in the year 2021. Single All the Way delivers that, and only that, which was enough for me. You can’t get Jennifer Coolidge and underutilize her amazing talents in this way.
No offense to the co-stars Michael Urie & Philemon Chambers as Peter & Nick. I had a crush on Chambers the second I saw those beautiful eyes. If you’re familiar with the genre, you’ll know exactly how this will end. It’s a fun journey to get there thanks to its supporting cast and the chemistry between Urie and Chambers. But they are heavily outshined by the few minutes we get to see Coolidge.
Frankly, this movie isn’t a new holiday classic, not a bit. But it is one of those rare films that manages to feel like a pure, unadulterated delight from beginning to end. It was so nice to watch a holiday movie where I could turn my brain off and just watch gay people fall in love. Yes it’s not perfect, but it’s one of the best rom-coms I’ve seen in years and that’s saying something coming from me.
Should you watch it?
Single All the Way is a smooth, fun, and funny LGBTQ holiday rom com that respects its characters and avoids making anyone a villain. We need more of those.
