This is a fun film that contains all the ingredients necessary for sustained enjoyment. As the moviegoer I felt each of the characters was relatable in more than one aspect. While they shared a certain commonality in behaviors and attitude, each also maintained an individual uniqueness and charm that,in differing capacities,endeared each to the viewer. It is a fine portrayal of how individual perspective of human weakness results in a vast array of conclusions. Moreover the film recognized, if not celebrated, the power of tradition, loyalty and family and how these bonds, or lack thereof, command attention and drive expressive emotion in each and every one of us. Plus, who doesn't enjoy observing others who are convincingly crazier than any of us dare declare ourselves to be. Much of the photography was excellent and the scene transitions were timely, creating a level balance of dialogue and visual stimulation. The elements of mass appeal contained within the story provide a vehicle for entertainment of young and old alike. Each of the actors performed with a measured pride in the work. The overall satisfaction in the entertainment value of this film is a fine testament to the worthy effort put forth by the producers, cast and crew.
