Movie Night in Canada: Vancouver couple star in gay-twist straight romcom What an Idiot

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      How far would you go for love? Would you even go so far as to pretend you're gay if you were straight?

      That's what Nick does in the romcom What an Idiot, the tale of straight guy who falls for his beautiful boss Jackie at his workplace. The two become fast friends—but only because Jackie believes Nick is gay. Nick feels forced to keep up the charade, leading to all imaginable awkward and amusing social situations.

      Nick and Jackie are played by real-life North Vancouver couple Peter and Julia Benson.

      The duo also starred together in the 2014 psychological horror Death Do Us Part and the 2013 dance competition mockumentary Leap 4 Your Life.

      What an Idiot was shot in Vancouver, and Vancouverites can play Vancouver-spotting as they watch it.

      While the film started its limited theatrical release in Canada on February 5, it'll also be released on VOD and iTunes on Tuesday (February 9).
