Storyline

Nurse and con artist Belle Haimes (Valri Bromfield) lives with her dull-witted husband Rex Haimes (Stephen E. Miller) in the Hart Mansion in British Columbia. There she cares for the invalid, 103 year-old Slim Hart, aka Pappy, (Joe Austin) and his wife, Minnie (Enid Saunders) who is in a coma. Waking up from a sleep, Belle is not enthusiastic about returning to her job and overhears the night nurse (Leslie Jones) reading a postcard from the Hart's two twin boys, Martin Hart (Eric Christmas) and Art Hart (Ted Stidder) that they will be returning home soon. Belle plots the death of old Mrs. Hart and the kidnapping of Old Pappy but things don't go quite according to plan. Written by Kevin Cloud Brechner, Time River Productions

Mild, elder comedy offers some surprises. (spoilers)
17 January 2006 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

'Where the Hart Is' is a light-hearted and sometimes, slow paced misadventure caper comedy that does attempt it's more stupid comedy moments (such as the running gag about the nun). The story is about a deviant nurse who murders the old woman in a coma that she cares for in order to marry the widowed husband (who is 103 years old) so that she can be next in line to inherit the family fortune (which is in the billions). The deceased old woman's step sons, two old twins (I liked the twins gag at the airport) come home rather unexpectedly to find out that all of this happened. Only the cunning nurse has kidnapped their 'Pappy' (in order to get married someplace and quick!) and they employ the services of the town sheriff (Leslie Neilsen) to help them out. Some of the story just moves along rather illogically, but for the most part, it is likely to generate a few laughs if you just go with it. Probably recommended more for older audiences who may appreciate the more humorous subtleties (assuming you still pay attention to details).
