Has it's problems, but good modest effort

I have seen a couple of Rob Williams other films and enjoyed them. "Make the Yuletide Gay" was probably my favorite of his to date. I thought the premise of this film seemed interesting. A young gay man traveling on a cruise alone makes a connection with another male passenger who is traveling with his wife. As his wife is often seasick, the two get to spend much time together and begin to fall in love. I was pretty sure I knew where this was going, especially after meeting the wife who was portrayed as a one dimensional airhead. Then to my surprise, the story got more complex, the wife became more sympathetic, and I realized I was being dismissive of a film that truly had something to say. The lead character Hank (Adam Fried) is a likable character whom we root for and he and Kurt (Ian Dick) have a nice chemistry. There is some clunky dialogue and I could have done without the cringey Jewish humor, buy overall I enjoyed this film. I even stayed for the end credits and was shocked and impressed to find out the whole film was filmed with an IPhone 6s plus!

Low budget with forced acting, but a sweet little story

This was obviously filmed on a very low budget, and maybe edited on a home computer. However, it was watchable and the story was quite sweet and true to form. The whole "Jewish humor" seemed a bit out of place at times but guess it played some sort of role in defining the character. Since these relationships usually end the same way, it was not a surprising ending.

Ironically Charming for a Low Budget Film

I agree with some of the other reviews that I went into this one with super low expectations. In the end it actually did have a little substance. There were humorous parts and some sexy scenes that did help make the whole romance seem real and not forced. I definitely agree that the Jewish humor is a little much. I think the kind of charming part of this movie is it seems like they just booked a cruise and filmed rogue. It was a little awkward at first but I kind of appreciated that it did make it feel a bit more organic. It does definitely look like it was shot on a iPhone 6s, but it definitely works with the whole low-budget charm this has. The takeaway for me was that I always wasted so much time chasing unavailable and confused guys and I think the movie does a good job of reminding us gay boys to seek out guys who will 100% show up for us and the movie didn't preach it to me like many other gay movies do.
