Dirty Laundry ★½ 2007 (PG-13)

Preachy family comedy about acceptance with an either over-the-top or winning performance by Devine, depending on viewer perception. New York writer Sheldon (Dunbar) returns to his Georgia roots after a call from his mama (Devine). She introduces him to his 10-year-old son (a shocker for Sheldon), who's the product of a one-night stand, and does her best to not see that her boy is gay, even after his boyfriend (Costello) shows up. 100m/C DVD . Rockmond Dunbar, Loretta Devine, Jenifer Lewis, Joey Costello, Aaron Grady Shaw, Terri J. Vaughn, Maurice Jamal; D: Maurice Jamal; W: Maurice Jamal; C: Rory King, Liz Rubin.
