Critic Reviews for The Thing About My Folks
Reiser, a famous face from the long-running TV series Mad About You, here proves himself to be a skilful writer and actor for the big screen.
Two men of very different generations coming to understand and appreciate each other makes for some fine moments. And that's just the actors.
If you've ever wondered what it would feel like to be trapped in a '36 Ford convertible for 47 years with a Yiddish theater version of Dr. Phil and the runaway bride, this is the movie for you.
Reiser has given us a film that makes us laugh while contemplating the ways we understand and misunderstand those we love.
The film is a little saccharine and never as moving as Reiser expected. I know Reiser loves his father, but I didn't need to pay to be told it.
Audience Reviews for The Thing About My Folks
What an amazing and magnificent movie. It`s hilarious, deeply moving and utterly satisfying. A masterpiece of comedy and drama well rounded into a real joy of a film. Some of the best and most realistic character work i have ever seen ina film. It delivers unstoppable laughs from start to finish. Peter Falk and Paul Reiser give outstanding and beautiful performances. Falk is brilliant, he gives one of the bet screen performances of 2005. Weiser is excellent, he writes as well as performs superbly in this film. A stunning and well-crafted picture.
Fantastic job by the two leads... Everyone can relate to what these people go through.
Wow, what a great surprise. Peter Falk is another much under-appreciated actor. And thank you Olympia Dukakis for reaffirming my faith in your ability. How ironic to see this just after seeing her in that horrific Picture Perfect -- another indication of how bad the direction was in that movie.
This one is well worth the time, flixsters, for family, for love, for the time-honored tradition of growing old. Peter Falk is a genius.
