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.

Angelo is a pretty good guy, huh?
Yeah, he put me on Prozac.
Yeah, I feel pretty good about committing suicide now.

This writer/director, John Debellis, reminds me of Woody Allen in the early years. It's hard to believe that this is somebody's first film! And how did he get all the well known actors to do the production as a relatively unknown in the film community? I thought Mario Cantone was perfectly cast and it was wonderful to see T.R Knight on the big screen- and this was before joining Greys Anatomy! I guess the director spotted this talent before the networks ha ha. I loved the Godmother scene- the actress was amazing and it was directed very well...I recently read that the film won best director at a film festival in Italy. The Jiffy Pop birth scene was like vintage Woody- this writer has an incredibly offbeat imagination! Barbara Feldon was wonderful- hysterically neurotic! Great to see one of the Sopranos guys, Vincent Pastore as a priest- one of my favorite scenes!Great story and I thought that the DP did an absolutely incredible job. I look forward to seeing more films by Debellis. I'm shocked that it's not in theatres!
