Spoiler Alert

“Spoiler Alert” is a love story about two men and their years together. Jim Parsons, of “the Big Bang Theory” plays Michael, an uptight writer for TV Guide. He meets Ben Aldrich’s Kip, a free spirit artistic type. The first half of the film is about how their relationship develops and it is funny and clever. Especially enjoyable is when Michael meets Kip’s parents, played by Sally Field and Bill Irwin. The second half takes a more serious tone. Their relationship has problems and they have to deal with them. Then Kip becomes ill. The film handles these things in a compelling, realistic way. Interspersed in the proceedings are Michael day dreams that take the form of a sitcom. Nicely acted, I came to care about these characters. A well done dramedy, I recommend this film.
