Michel D. (michelann) from WALNUT GROVE, MO

Absolutely delightful film about family and the often times complicated ability to simply communicate. Peter Falk is, as always, a cantankerous old "fart" (you will see what I mean) who has this one track mindedness that can easily be taken wrong. He and son, beautifully portrayed by Paul Reiser, finally spend quality time together while on a road trip and actually get to know each other. Mom, Olympia Dukakis, finally shows up near the movies end but is a strong presence throughout the story. Long story short, this is a beautifully written and acted story about family!

A sweet film, with honest portrayals of relationships and buried questions. Solid acting, with good actors. Fun and touching. Glad I saw it.

I really like Peter Falk movies and this one was also great. The acting by everyone was great and the plot moved along well.
