The Screen Guide

Jeff and his Dad are an odd couple of lonely hearts. One an open-hearted widower, the other a young bachelor of a different persuasion. Both men need some romance in their otherwise boring lives and decide to look for new ways to find it. Dad enrols in a computer dating service to find his lady love. Son Jeff, sick of one night stands and noisy gay bars, wants a real commitment. But when he finds his Mr Right, what will Dad have to say!
