It just kept getting better & better - very funny.
17 February 2001 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that many families can relate too. After the first 5 to 10 minutes of setting, it just kept getting better. I could identify the characteristics of some of the actors with my own relatives.

Anyone between 20 and 80 who has ever lost a family member should be able to relate this comedy. Well done! Many great lines.
