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.

Very Funny If You've Ever Experienced Sibling Rivalry!
26 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A very funny film from Yoav Factor - though roughly enjoyable all round family entertainment, that anyone with siblings and ageing parents can identify with. Honour Blackman's portrayal of an elderly Jewish mother is excellent. A genuinely heart warming film with lots of funny moments and a touching storyline. Whilst Timothy Spall, puts in an excellent performance, Rhona is excellent as the daughter and I felt that the role of the Rabbi was a hysterically funny. I particularly liked the fact Yoav did not work with a predominantly Jewish Cast for this film. Overall this was a great first attempt by an aspiring new director and well worth a viewing if you understand the dynamics and you are from a large family.
