About the Movie

An up-tight lawyer, Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall – “The King's Speech”), has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman – “Goldfinger”) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a Jewish holiday. They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny’s eyes, his grown-up children are certainly not even from the same planet: a ruthless control-freak and hard-nosed capitalist (James Callis – “Battlestar Galactica”), an outspoken, argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause (Rhona Mitra – “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans”), an outer-worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all, a bible bashing born-again Rabbi! While they might quarrel, fight, and perhaps even be starting a war in Africa, they are still family. It is going to take a whole lot of soul-searching and sacrifice for everyone to come together in this heart-warming and comic family drama that will have you thinking fondly of your own.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The script includes little back story and lots of button-pushing shorthand, none of which feels genuine... – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Sep 15, 2014

Rotten: Theoretical laughter, tears and maudlin contrivance ensue. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Mar 23, 2012

Rotten: A frantic, badly constructed, slightly offensive muddle that doesn't so much end as run out of things on a checklist. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Sep 15, 2014

Rotten: What happens when you put a rabbi, a Buddhist monk, a high-strung capitalist, and a lesbian humanitarian together in the same room? Not comedy, it turns out. – Eric Hynes, Village Voice, Mar 13, 2012
