Movie Info

Members of the Stuckman family gather for Seder with patriarch Ira (Michael Lerner), an old-fashioned man who pushes his sons as hard as his own father (Jack Klugman) pushed him. Chaos erupts when one of Ira's sons slips him a hit of Ecstasy, turning him into a modern Moses.

  • Litvak's movie almost immediately barges across the line separating the comically absurd from the outright obnoxious.

  • Manages to be broad, mawkish and mean-spirited all at once.

    May 5, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • A haunting and disturbing film.

  • This abrasive Passover comedy-drama is extremely difficult to sit through, and if its makers weren't all Jewish, it would be considered anti-Semitic.

  • There's something very sweet and real beneath all the bluster, braggadocio, disgust and denial, pushing through as improbably and miraculously as Moses through the Red Sea.

  • We're basically left with a wild-eyed group of actors who probably had a lot more fun shooting When Do We Eat? than they did watching it.

    A little overdramatic but there are an interesting mix of stories and it's kinda funny and sweet.
