Shockingly inept from start to finish...

Part madcap comedy, part weepy funeral saga, the picture is a mess, hopelessly failing a colorful cast making an effort to lend the film some personality.

Audience Reviews for The Six Wives of Henry Lefay

This film will make anyone laugh. Its the first film in a very long time that I've seen Tim Allen appear in that's worth watching and funny. About a man who has been married six times or is it seven? Only Henry Lefay knows for sure. He relies on his daughter to get him out of his jams. This is a IFC film and one of the best I've seen. 4 1/2 Stars

I enjoyed this movie. I thought it was witty, sweet, and quite fun. It was entertaining, but not the usual Tim Allen fall down hysterical movie. The wives for me were the real talent. Be prepared to hang in there until the end, and you will get your warm and fuzzy :-)

Cast: Elisha Cuthbert, Tim Allen, Eric Christian Olsen, Jenna Elfman, Jenna Dewan, Lindsay Sloane, Paz Vega, Andie MacDowell, Kelli Garner, Chris Klein, Edward Herrmann, S. Epatha Merkerson

Director: Howard Michael Gould

Summary: After salesman Henry Lefay (Tim Allen) disappears while skydiving and is presumed dead, his grieving daughter (Elisha Cuthbert) begins to make funeral arrangements, a process made tricky when his current wife and five exes descend and wage a fierce power struggle over the burial.

My Thoughts: "I enjoy Tim Allen's films, no matter how funny or un-funny they are. Elisha Cuthbert was likeable, and I enjoyed her character. The exes are great. Jenna Elfman really plays a crazy ex. She was lots of fun. Barbara Barrie plays the sometimes forgetful, hard hearing grandma, who, if I may add, has a bit of a slutty past. It's just a fun comedy, nothing to take to serious. Not an LOL kind of film, but it'll make you smile. It's quirky with a few twists. It won't be to everyone's liking."
