I laughed in first 3 minutes and didn't stop the whole movie!
15 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in Boston at a film festival. Wasn't going to go because it was raining, but I'm really glad because it was soooo well done. I told my family about this and some friends and now we're waiting for the release. When will it come out? My Armenian friend (my date) laughed at all the Armenian family stuff. The cast was freakin perfect and everyone of them made me laugh at some point. For a PG13 comedy, it KILLED and the audience loved it. The blue dress scene at the school was brilliant! The Armenian actor Vahik playing Uncle Rafael also played his son and he blew me away. He was there with his producers and answered questions. He will be discovered because of this film. John Michael Higgins was funny too.
