When New York attorney Gordon Hocheiser meets Louise Callan, the girl of his dreams, he schemes to eliminate his aging, senile mother, even though he promised his late father that he'd always take care of her. He fears that his batty mom's eccentricities will shortly lead to Louise's departure.Written by

You think the hair gel scene in "There's Something About Mary" is disgusting? You think the scene in "Big Daddy" where the kid practices spitting to the ground and sucking it back up is tasteless? You clearly have not witnessed the sheer hilarity of "Where's Poppa?" If you wanna see some tasteless humor done right, see this movie (no offense to "There's Something About Mary" or "Big Daddy", which are still very funny).
"Where's Poppa?" is unrelenting! Laugh-out-loud funny! Never a dull moment!
