When Joan Weldon discovers she is dying of lung cancer, she sets out to reconcile her dysfunctional relationships with her three children, her husband, and along the way, her former best friend. The family's destructive ways are offset by messy and somewhat humorous attempts by Joan to set her children on the right course before she dies. In this big dysfunctional mix, they will all learn to connect in their own ways, and realize on their own terms what life is about.Written by
Isn't it Delicious, a dark family comedy wryly and irreverently visits the issues, How do you choose to live this one life? And how do those choices, good bad, and ugly affect your friends and family? From the adage that only the lucky grow up, and you know you've grown up when you have a really good hard laugh at yourself, this film provides lessons about growing up, delivering some hard laughs, and truths which sometimes keep us from crying.
Chalfant's performance provides heart wrenching, pain and authenticity. I realize this film was made on an ultra-low budget and sometimes it shows, but the story line stands strong. The film is worth a look as it takes a comedic look on the reality that one's life is so short in the infinite cosmos.
