Movie Info

When a TV producer is desperate to find a replacement series, she convinces a 71 year-old Armenian, tell-it-like-it-is Uncle to star in a new reality show. Cultures collide when Uncle Rafael is thrown into the Schumacher family household where he, in his own Armenian way, has one week to save an already broken and dysfunctional American family from falling apart. The only rule-everyone must follow his rules! -- (C) Official Site

"My Uncle Rafael" elicits plenty of goofy chuckles even as it regularly threatens to fly off the rails.

A hokey story with a needless reality-show overlay.

An insufferable import indebted to Mrs. Doubtfire in which a man in prosthetics helps a family cope with, and overcome, divorce.

For anyone who has the bad luck to see this vanity production, it will be remembered as one of the worst films of the year--if not the decade.

It's all too simplistic, but there's something about watching this inept, callow, bourgeois family getting slapped, scolded, and generally schooled by their new, platitude-spewing Armenian "uncle" that's perversely entertaining.
