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

A little gem!
23 March 2005 | by melissa-179See all my reviews

Very cute film! Was not sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised from start to finish. I laughed (so did the whole audience!!) - lots of great moments and lines thru the whole film. Music was fun and different but fit well. Kudos for getting Jack Klugman! I love Lesley Ann Warren & Micheal Lerner! The rest of the cast was wonderful & I look forward to seeing them in future projects. I hope this film will show the amusing, warm, loving and crazy side of being Jewish... Like most religions & cultures, we all have our nuttiness! However, anyone will be able to relate to this family and the evening they share. Great little film! I will tell others to see it!
