Dee Dee Rutherford has never been able to figure out what her father, Bill, wants from her. Like oil and water they've lived essentially separate lives for the past 15 years-Bill running his Fortune 500 company from the city and Dee Dee on the dole, chasing an endless series of outlandish adventures from his summer home. Now, on the eve of his retirement, Bill finds he's got one piece of unfinished business: to finally make an upstanding woman of his brash, neglected, and undisciplined daughter. But in laying down the law, he learns Dee Dee's capable of a lot more than he ever knew and soon finds his tactics are punishing him more than her. As Dee Dee struggles to placate her father she's confronted by the reality that she 'doesn't know how to be anybody else' but her complicated, unrefined, unsinkable, adventure-seeking self. In the end, each drives the other to the same surprising discovery of what it is Bill really wants. Written by
For William Rutherford's emotional hospital bed speech to Dee Dee, Dolly Grip Korey Salajka executed a 5-foot continuous-speed push-in over 3 min. 45 sec. for 10 takes without missing a mark. See more »
A must see comedy that will have you shocked and laughing all at once. Lisa Ann Walter as Dee Dee Rutherford is absolutely outrageous and audacious. She takes us through the restrictive obstacles of modern living e.g. driving within the speed limits-and her responses are an imaginative spin on normal acceptable behavior. Things get a bit tough on Dee Dee when her father retires and decides it is mano a womano with his daughter. Her father, like old King Lear, strips his only daughter of everything, food, money, shelter until she decides to live according to daddy's rules. Dee Dee cannot and will not be tamed. with hardly a shrug she says okay, fine. I don't need it anyway. And she doesn't. a rollicking and tender hearted ending ensues wherein DeeDee reunites everyone by giving them a bit of what they want from her. Ms Walter deedeelightfully carries the day in this feature.
