"Once upon a time, there was a woman who discovered that she had turned into the wrong person." Based on Anne Tyler's novel, the movie centers on Rebecca Davitch, a 53-year-old single mother and grandmother, and the cast of her colorful family around her. Written by
This film was very enjoyable and showed a family with many problems and lots and lots of good time Parties! Jack Palance,(Poppy Davitch),"War Games",'96, was the star of this film with his great acting and very comical role as the Senior Citizen of the family. Poppy was constantly eating at the kitchen table and waiting for a Big Birthday Event, his 100th ! Peter Fonda,(Will Allenby),"The Laramie Project",'02, play a middle aged/old sweetheart friend, who was a stuffed shirt that was not able to accept the family and their way of living and was not able to understand why the family was such a big Melting Pot of all races. If you loved Jack Palance over the years and want to see him at his very best, this is the film for YOU!
