Well written and well acted.
James Knickerbocker
Rather than waste your time on this much ado about nothing, check out Falk as the dying Dad in 2005's "Things About My Folks," with Paul Reiser.
James A. Altman
A feel good type of movie worth watching every so often.

This film reminded me what a well written and acted film looks like. If you love smart dialogue and comedy, this is your kind of movie. I wish more films were this good.
If you liked this film, I suggest that you see "When Do We Eat".

I liked every minute of this movie.
It made me remeber "Noises OFF" because of the fast pace and the continuous laughing it provokes.
I do recomend.

We have always loved Peter Falk and the story line fits his age and his desires for the end of his life. He is charismatic and the relationships with his 3 children is priceless. A feel good type of movie worth watching every so often. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is a charming and funny family drama. Excellent ensemble cast, with Peter Falk and Laura San Giacomo as standouts. Very enjoyable.
