5.0 out of 5 stars Lured me in September 27, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Until two weeks ago, I had never heard of this movie. I began watching about a half hour into it the other day when I came across it on Showtime and remained planted until it was over. Brilliant display of real people underneath the pretensions and dysfunctions of cultural and class differences within a family. Paul Reiser was excellent in this movie, as were all of the lead characters. Although a drama, there are a lot of surprisingly funny moments in this film. A good watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars moving, and emoitonal November 15, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
finally available on DVD, quality is good, though just a transfer from original VHS source. Still, a surprisingly unheralded drama about a NY pyschiatrist (Reiser) who, diagnosed with leukemia and in need of a bone marrow donor, goes in search of his biologial family in Liverpool upon learning he is adopted. Well acted, well written drama (though with a good dose of humor) and literally made me sob. Have watched it numerous times on tape and cable and it keeps sucking you in with the story and its endearing characters, especially a good Julie Walters (Educating Rita).
Can't go wrong with this purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmissable May 3, 2004
By Mz
I can't stress enough how good this programme is. I live in the UK and it's only been shown twice on TV and is not yet availabe on DVD or video here, but luckily i recorded it second time it was on, so i haven't had to cope without it.
The story is so sad, yet happy and amusing at the same time. I wish it didn't end how it does (i wont give it away), but apart from that, i can't fault it.
Julie Walters deserved her BAFTA, but the whole cast was incredible. Paul Reiser was hilarious and portrayed the characters emotions perfectly. And then, of course, there's Amy Robbins who shines in everything and can do no wrong.
If you haven't seen this yet, then stop whatever else you're doing and see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite movies December 2, 2003
By kimmer
This is the BEST movie! I had never heard of this movie until earlier this year when I caught it on cable. It pulled me right in and I watched it every time it came on. I've told everyone about this movie and looked several times on the internet to see if I could order it. I was thrilled when I found out that it was available and immediately ordered it. It was perfectly cast and totally believable. Being an adopted child myself, I also understood how Paul's character felt. This movie takes you on a wonderful emotional ride and you literaly become part of this family. Love, family, laughter and tears! It is definately a must see!

5.0 out of 5 stars Paul Reiser at his best June 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Paul Reiser plays a doctor that just found out he has blood cancer. Then he finds out his mother is not his biological mother but she lives in England. So he is off to meet her and the rest of the crazy family he is now related to. Only a great mind like Reiser could come-up with and act light and funny in what would be a serious solemn. You will enjoy and not be watching a tearjerker. You get to see his serious acting and his never ending funny side. This is one of my favorite movies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Julie Walters at her best December 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoy films with Julie Walters, this was a gem. Paul Riser was also great . Probably a shock to find out what you thought was your family history proved to be wrong.This being brought on by a tragedy in the making. No dead spots, the film moves quite well. All the characters really make this film move thru the phases of beginning, of reconciliation, and conclusion. The science maybe be a bit fuzzy, but this is another film that begs a sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swearing,but good movie. November 25, 2013
By GeeMa
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A tad too much swearing, which could have been left out and the story would have still been great. When will Hollywood realize NOT every family swears? It was good seeing Paul Reiser can do a serious/comedy movie. I would recommend it.
