Storyline

When Do We Eat? is the story of the "world's fastest Passover Seder" gone horribly awry. It's about an old school dad who's as tough on his sons as his father is on him. On this night, however, one of the boys slips Dad a dose of special, hallucinogenic Ecstasy in order "to give him a new perspective." Meanwhile, Mom brings a handsome stranger to dinner and the kids take sides. By the end of the night, however, Dad's visions turn him into a modern day Moses intent on leading this hungry group to the promised land of family forgiveness. Of course they're all so stubborn, it would be easier to part the Red Sea. Written by THINKFilm

"When Do We Eat?" is the "Greek Wedding" of the Year!
29 March 2005 | by tandemmgmt2002See all my reviews

I got lucky and was able to sneak into a screening in Hollywood of this yet to be released film. What a great couple of hours it was! Most indie movies today aren't worth the film they are shot on. This one is a great exception. Starting with a terrific script, great performances and direction...the film also has knock out production values including some great visual effects...it's hard to believe this film was done on such a small budget. "When Do We Eat" is very funny, painfully real and has great comedic performances by Jack Klugman, Michael Lerner , Ben Feldman, Lesley Ann Warren (as good as her performance in "Victor, Victoria") and Max Greenfield. "When Do We Eat?" should be required viewing for all indie producers and directors on how to do an indie right!
