Matt Mulhern stars as an out of work sit-com actor visiting his empty childhood home on the Jersey shore while struggling to make sense of the loss of his father, his past, and, for one funny and heartbreaking week, himself.
Shmuel, a Hasidic cantor in Upstate New York, distraught by the untimely death of his wife, struggles to find religious solace, while secretly obsessing over how her body will decay. As a clandestine partnership develops with Albert, a local community college biology professor, the two embark on a darkly comic and increasingly literal undertaking into the underworld.Written by
The premise of the storyline does not sell the movie, yet there are some laugh out loud scenes and dark humour within. The movie is long drawn out, and could have easily been cut into a short story. The ending of the movie is a little odd, and felt that the direction could have taken a funnier approach, rather than a serious one.
Matthew Broderick is very apt in this role, felt the casting crew did a good job at hiring him for this movie.
The movie, although long drawn, is still watchable, and still offers some laughs and dark comedy. Probably a movie to watch on your own when you have a couple of hours to kill, rather than a group of friends, as there are long scenes of just talking within the movie, which can get a little boring.
