Excellent directing
12 December 2018 | by rickfriedbergSee all my reviews

Excellent direction with a subtle sardonic touch by Mr. Tanasescu. Mary Tyler Moore does her stuff as the consummate comedic pro that she is.

Tony Curtis somewhat walks through with that jaunting twinkle in his eye as seen in prior comedic ventures.

Joe Balogna does a masterful turn as the "heavy" playing it with nuanced smirk that lies bubbling just below the surface and never drowns you with the cliche.

Tom Hensley's Danny Elfmanesque-like score adds just the right tone to the wacky proceedings.

All in all, an enjoyable romp through the up down and up life of a uncommon dysfunctional family.
