Movie Info

Three brothers return home to attend their late father's wake, only to find that the only hope for moving in is to finally sort through their own quandaries, flaws, and failings in director Christopher Jaymes' quirky, seriocomic reunion film. Their father was Hollywood royalty, so what does that make the three wayward sons? As the day begins and the wake commences, the three boys become so wrapped up in their own immediate problems that they nearly forget to grieve.

If you're a fan of jaundiced views of Hollywood or unedifying portraits of dysfunctional families, look no further.

There's more than a whiff of Festen and Altman in first-time director Christopher James's frantic, enjoyably overstuffed funeral drama.

June 6, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Self-aware but self-regarding indie navel gazing; no cause for celebration.

June 6, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Despite the dark tone, the likeably unlikeable ensemble cast is uniformly excellent, and there are some real laughs to be had.

Jaymes and his castmates nail the characters and the dialogue

November 17, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Hand-held cameras and semi-improvised dialogue lend it realism, while the flurry of well-crafted comic situations it creates brings it to heights of hilarity.
