Storyline

The Lord moves in mysterious ways. Jeff has problems: his father is dying and wants either Jeff or Jeff's playboy brother Tom to sire a child before death's triumph; Jeff's mother constantly puts him down; he has strange dreams; and, he's a shy seminarian whose vocation is shaky. When it becomes impossible for Tom to fulfill dad's last request, Jeff leaves the seminary, gets a job as a drama coach at a home for aged actors, and sets about to please his father. He goes to bars to pick up women, seeks the help of an unconventional therapist, places an ad in the personals - and makes no progress. Meanwhile, he jokes around with a sweet co-worker named Cathy.

Laugh out loud
3 May 2008 | by vaughnsuponatimeSee all my reviews

As one who grew up east coast Italian, I found myself laughing throughout the movie. It not only brought back memories of my childhood experience but the surprising twists kept me carried me through the plot effortlessly. I only wish it was longer than 90 minutes. T. R Knight is great, very sympathetic and funny caught in his situation. Danny Aiello is terrific, as always, and Barbra Felton is still a doll. Wish we could see her in more films. The grandmother's running gag was hysterical. Tony LoBianco, Vincent Pastore and Frank Vincent bring authenticity to the Italian American background and Joe Piscopo is a hoot. John De Bellis really rings the bell with this one. Can't wait until his next film opens.
