This family has issues! When mean and surly Bud Slocumb keels over at breakfast, his family gathers for the wake and funeral: long-suffering widow Raynelle, unemployed son Junior who's cheating on his wife Charisse, son Ray Bud who holds a job and has a loving wife, Lucille, but struggles with alcoholism and with their difficulty having children. There's younger daughter Delightful, who constantly eats; religious Aunt Marguerite and her wayward son Royce; and, there's Juanita, their wealthy cousin's wife. They all descend on the town of Lula, struggle to say something nice about Bud, and face the challenge of sorting out their relationships with the living. Written by <>

One of the best films you've never heard of!
4 December 2006 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Just caught this on local TV here and I had no idea this film ever existed. It's funny, it's human, it's warm, it's truthful but it's hopeful. I may be miles removed from the demographics pictured here but I remember a certain funeral in my own family that had all the hallmarks of this one...

As far as the storytelling is concerned, this film/script/play has all the intricacies and finely observed and rendered detail that makes the films of Marcel Pagnol about the life of Southern Frenchmen so universal yesterday, today and tomorrow, all around the world.

Fine ensemble cast where none of the stars detract from each other. A class act all the way.
