Storyline

My Longest Day is a humor-filled documentary of one young man's struggle with his father's cancer diagnosis. Matthew Steinhart traverses his family history and the scientific aspects of cancer and surgery, all the while relating his father's plight to popular culture and contemporary humor. Despite the seriousness of cancer, this documentary remains light by poking fun at today's taboos and cultural idiosyncrasies. However, it never forgets the severity and complications that cancer possesses, declaring the necessities of family and friendship in times of need. Written by Anonymous

An amazingly well done film
26 March 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Wow, I really liked this film. Despite being about cancer, the film managed to keep a relatively upbeat and funny mood--something I really appreciated.

The entire film is narrated as a long series of film and picture clips appear on the screen. While this style may sound very dull, it certainly wasn't--as the narrator's dialog was amazingly good--clever, funny and brilliant. Amazingly enough, IMDb says that ALL this wonderful dialog was written in only one day--and that's very hard to believe. I loved the rapid fire pace and there were so many great touches I was left with great respect for Matthew A. Steinhart--talk about talent (note--this is NOT his mother and I have never met the man). In addition, I adored the funny touches, such as the long list of people that he thanks at the end for, so far, not having sued him! It takes a very serious subject and manages to make it very, very palatable.
