Goodnatured, smart comedy for all!
6 January 2011 | by grocer70See all my reviews

Caught an early screening of My Uncle Rafael and it's a real rarity these days -- a good-natured family comedy that will amuse kids over ten years old, without sacrificing any smart, pointed laughs for the rest of us adults. This fun and sweet culture-clash Armenian/American comedy pulls off the difficult trick of being both insightful and satiric, while never being above going for a broad laugh. Familiar-face comic actors Joe Lo Truglio, Anthony Clark, and especially Missi Pyle and John Michael Higgins (who are hilarious), provide very funny support for the extremely impressive newcomer Vahik Pirhamzei, who really shines in two completely different lead roles. Keep an eye out for Uncle Rafael!
