The second season of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's movie making reality series goes a different route when it's two professionals realizing their vision on screen instead of just one: writer and director.
Bobby is a gay man in the closet in 2003, afraid to come out to his three older brothers, even though he's at least 30 and is being pressed by his sister, his boyfriend, and his lesbian beard to tell the lads. The death of his father and a fishing trip with his brothers provide occasions when he could tell them, but he fails. When he screws his courage to the sticking point, how will they react, and how will he deal with their reactions? He imagines a movie of his rather boring life - surrounded by possibilities - but can anything overcome the insular narrow-mindedness of a big Irish Catholic family in Chicago?Written by
When the siblings are gathered at their parents' house to look through the items at the house, Luke is heard saying "another round?" twice: just before and then again just after he says, "you are never too drunk to be pilfering your dead parents' house for goods." See more »
We still going on the fishing trip?
Hell, yeah, we're still going on the fishing trip, Connor. Dad would want us to.
It's not like it's the seventh game of the World Series.
Well, a fishing trip's a nice way to honor Father.
[turns to Jack]
My brother the Father, can you get away from your flock?
[continues as if he's Jack, using a bottle of beer as a phone]
"Ah, Father Dreary. Father Jack here. Can you cover for me this weekend? Those altar boys are wearing me out!"

This film is about a young man having to come out to his 4 brothers, including a catholic priest, that he is gay.
I find "Outing Riley" a lot more entertaining than many gay films. For a start, it is made really professionally. It has got nice sets, good camera work and also people who can act! The most refreshing thing of all is that it has no campness, stereotypes or clichés that plagues a lot of these films. Much of the time, I thought I was watching a straight film. It's just like watching "American Pie" at times, for example having 4 guys drinking and goofing around, peeping at hot girls. If the character Andy was changed to a woman, then "Outing Riley" could well have been a typical Hollywood romantic or teenage sex comedy.
