For the most part its droll humor rubbed me the right way despite its pat facile conclusion and all the product placements.

For people who believe that a grown-up son can never go home again, Brook's serio comedy, one of the few Hollywood pictures dealing with mother-son relationship in a poignant way, came as a surprise; Debbie Reynolds in a comeback turn is great.

Brooks has always been a second-rate Woody Allen to me. This is a second-rate Brooks' film.

Cuts to the quick with its illuminating insights into why parents and their adult children sometimes have trouble accepting each other as real people.

It wasn't the automatic laughter produced by slam-dunk punch lines, but the laughter of recognition, of insight, even sometimes of squirmy discomfort, as the truths hit close to home.
