Storyline

An up-tight lawyer, Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall), has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a Jewish holiday. They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes, his grown-up children are certainly not even from the same planet: a ruthless control-freak and hard-nosed capitalist, an outspoken, argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause, an outer-worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all, a bible bashing born-again Rabbi. While they might quarrel, fight, and perhaps even be starting a war in Africa, they are still family. It is going to take a whole lot of soul-searching and sacrifice for everyone to come together in this comic drama. Written by monterey media inc.

A dreadful movie - complete waste of time.
11 March 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Possibly the worst movie I've ever wasted almost 2 hours of my life watching. It is clearly a film made for a Jewish audience (yes my family is too!) and I can't see any other people considering this as comedy!

I do not normally watch a film because of the cast members but this was one such occasion - what a mistake. Why would an actor like Tim Spall be associated with this garbage - money I suppose!

The whole concept is quite ludicrous, and Spall seems completely wrong for the part - his character is simply Tim Spall! Honor Blackman as an elderly Jewish mother is a little more plausible.

I think the director, Yoav Factor, might have done better with a Jewish cast but preferably a different topic altogether!
