  • Details
Comedian Rosie O'Donnell dons her crusader's cap in this touching documentary that tags along on the first cruise for gay and lesbian families who sail toward, ironically, a homophobic greeting in the Bahamas. Director Shari Cookson interlaces the personal stories of passengers -- who include not only same-sex couples but their heterosexual parents, siblings and friends -- with film of shipboard shows and adoption seminars for the voyagers.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that children cry due to anti-gay protests in the Bahamas. Gay and lesbian couples are shown in loving relationships and as part of families that include children and heterosexual parents and children, which may prompt children to ask questions about sexual orientation. Couples also discuss alternative forms of having children, including adoption, sperm banks, and surrogacy. Teens talk about discrimination they've experienced because their parents are gay. But overall, the message here is of love of family.

Sexual Content
