"In a better, more conserva-friendly America, we'd get not Brokeback Mountain but perhaps a film about a happy, heterosexual family man living in Boston suddenly inspired to abandon his wife and children by the legalization of gay marriage. With the main breadwinner gone, the wife can't afford to pay the bills when the kids get sick. In crucial scenes, she bemoans not the GOP congressional cuts in Medicaid or child support enforcement, but the local state government's lack of enthusiasm for discriminating against gays and lesbians... In the conservative mind, this has all the makings of a hit, if the public's yearning for such fare weren’t being stifled once again by the all-powerful liberals."
