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 comedy that makes you laugh for a change
24 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was different from the very first scene. Without giving away the gag, the phone TR Knight uses was hysterically blasphemous (I think that's how it's spelled). The Honey moon scene has me on the floor, it was viciously romantic which made it even funnier. It took me a while to realize that the old retired actor in the home, run by Mario Cantone, was Tony Lo Bianco. It was a great makeup job.

It seemed like the movie went from one funny scene to the next, each one getting crazier, none more crazy than the Jiffy Pop birth scene. It had an element of Mel Brook's Young Frankenstien and Woody Allen's inventiveness. Although the story was simple and I knew where it would probably end up I had no idea who it would get there. The casting was great. It was fun seeing Joe Piscopo play such a funny outrageous character without going over the top. There's so many funny scenes I find myself wanting to tell them but I don't want to ruin the fun for you. This is probably one of the more unusual romantic comedies I've seen. It has a sweet story that blends with almost airplane like jokes that fit. It's fun. Rent or buy it, you'll enjoy it.
