The Laurie Lynd-directed comedy stars Tom Cavanagh and Ben Shenkman as a power couple who temporarily inherit an 11-year-old (the quite talented Noah Bernett) with a penchant for pink poodle belts, musical cinema and lacy fringe (that's just the beginning). The adorable film brought out much-needed laughs from the audience after they sat through 30-plus minutes of introductions and speeches, the first of which came from the lookin'-good Margaret Cho. Her opening was a passionate, and of course hysterical, speech about the historic times Californians are currently experiencing. Wedding registry jokes aside, Ms. Cho was a welcome boost of energy, a great way to start the evening.
Then, it was all about the afterparty.
A rotunda of bartenders was the centerpiece of the event, keeping the Absolut flowing throughout large lot that had been taken over by dancefloors, photobooths and comfy lounge spots. Yours truly, along with HIH's Editor-in-Chief (Michael Medico) and Managing Director (Corey Moore), had the pleasure of making new friends, meeting up with old ones (Kiss the Bride director C. Jay Cox, Grey's T.R Knight) and enjoying the fab festivities under the stars.
