Storyline

The Lord moves in mysterious ways. Jeff has problems: his father is dying and wants either Jeff or Jeff's playboy brother Tom to sire a child before death's triumph; Jeff's mother constantly puts him down; he has strange dreams; and, he's a shy seminarian whose vocation is shaky. When it becomes impossible for Tom to fulfill dad's last request, Jeff leaves the seminary, gets a job as a drama coach at a home for aged actors, and sets about to please his father. He goes to bars to pick up women, seeks the help of an unconventional therapist, places an ad in the personals - and makes no progress. Meanwhile, he jokes around with a sweet co-worker named Cathy.

A very funny movie
24 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's just plan fun. Nothing deep. Nothing profound. Nothing controversial, well maybe one thing, a sight gag but I won't get into that here.

This is an coming of age story that takes a familiar trail but the the twists and turns in the form of odd ball characters make this enjoyable ride full of strange treats.

TR Knight from Grey's Anatomy plays the lead, which by the look of him was shot before the TV. It's almost like his character George started here and grew into what it has become on the TV show. His death bed ridden father is played by Danny Aiello, who hams it up as an old time comic, who despite his failing health can't stop laughing at his own jokes. Mario Cantone is great as a want to be at one time actor, who runs an actors retirement home and take his job very seriously in a very funny way. The story is about a kid trying to please his father but in don't so he's really pleasing himself. And it seems like he was the last to know. Sabrina Loydd plays his love interest and they seem to fit better than the matches they made for him on Grey's anatomy. If you're looking for a movie to feel good about and laugh at without getting a bombarded by profanity and body functions jokes than this is your baby. Which is what the movie is really all about.
