Oddest assortment of dysfunctional characters I've seen in a while
Off the wall romantic comedy with one of the strangest plots I've ever seen. A middle aged man who still lives at home with his entire family falls for a woman 20 years his junior. This causes tension within his family, especially with the domineering father, a real tyrant. This guy is well into his fifties and still lets his father tell him he can't bring a woman home with him as though he were still a teen. Very weird family. The woman is a real loser type who needs a man to feed off of emotionally. They haven't got a chance. Very entertaining film with lots of shrill singing sequences and some good, and at times bizarre, dialogue. Great ending as the camera shows us the perfect couple after the rice has fallen from their hair and then pans over to the other perfect couple cynically revealing history in the process of repeating itself.
