What Happens Next Information

What Happens Next, original title You Can't Have It All is a 2011 comedy film by director Jay Arnold starring Jon Lindstrom, Chris Murrah and Wendie Malick. The film premiered on 27 August 2011 at FilmOut San Diego and was also screened at Philadelphia QFest and Hollywood Film Festival. General release in DVD was February 7, 2012.


Paul Greco (Jon Lindstrom) is a wealthy man who has sold his business and has retired. His sister Elise (Wendie Malick) gives him a dog. Paul assumes the daily dog-walking routine in the park where he encounters Andy Chance (Chris Murrah), a gay self-employed advertising whiz, who happens to own a dog himself. The daily meeting develops into a tender series of situations between the two as conversations exchanged become more and more involved and sincere.

Elise senses changes in Paul's recent behavior and personality and conspires to fix up Paul with a friend, Irene. At the same time, Andy's best friend and confidente Roz (Natalia Cigliuti), becomes uncomfortable with Andy's fascination over Paul, a fifty-five and very 'straight' man. Roz tries to fix Andy with an artist boy that is her first showcased artist in a new gallery project. This turned out to be Brian (Ariel Shafir), the son of Elise. Elise as an over-concerned and over-protective mother has serious reservations about the life choices of her son Brian and she suspects he may be gay. Brian has become seriously estranged from her but is still in good terms with his uncle Paul who is a sort of a confidant for him. Elise seeks help from PFLAG and by coincidence, it is Andy who gives her advice how to handle the situation with her son.

As the friendship between Andy and Paul develops, Andy becomes more convinced that Paul may actually be the answer to finding the perfect man in his life despite the age disparity between the two. After a month, Andy invites Paul to a dinner at his place which Paul promptly accepts. This quickly develops into a sexual affair that night, but the following day, Paul has second thoughts about the affair, particularly when Andy makes approaches to him in public that Paul resents because he is "not yet ready" for a public relationship.

In the final hilarious scene, all is uncovered in many twists and turns during what is supposed to be a family celebration of Brian's birthday.
