A stellar performance by the entire cast!
10 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

This IS one movie that deserved to be on the BIG screen first, Everyone in this should have received an EMMY at the least. Cronyn and Silverman especially took me by surprise.The set design was another magnificent point in this film. Everything including the costumes was typical of Brooklyn in the late forties. Neil Simon really came up with a superb screenplay here. Everyone who enjoys Neil Simon's plays SHOULD own a copy of this. I know of only one thing that could made this better but I doubt using the same set as that of Brighton Beach Memoirs was possible. Overall, this movie should be in the stores AGAIN.I also noticed the outstanding stereo soundtrack. This alone rivaled many films shown in theaters.
