Here, drink up, DeeDee; it's good for the nerves.
Probably hooked up with some trucker and is off gone on down the interstate.
Aren't you going to have one?

The Book of Ruth- Excellent: Story of Immaturity, Lust and Violence ****
This was a terrific film dealing with a teenage girl, verbally abused continuously by a mother, who drove 2 men out of her own life.
Christine Lahti gives an absolutely fabulous performance as the mother who always comes up with a line to put down her n'eer-do-well son-in-law.
When her simpleton daughter marries this pill popping, lazy fellow, all he takes is the constant verbal abuse by his mother-in-law. Nothing remedies the situation, even the birth of a grandchild adds to the woes of the family.
This is a perfect example that comedians would use to describe life with a mother-in-law. Obviously, this is not funny here and the story invariably turns tragic.
This is a tale of what the lack of education and maturity can lead to.
I highly recommend this film.
