I saw this film on tv quite many years ago. I loved it. I haven't been able to find it again. One day I will. It has this quirky jewish humour that apparently isn't for everybody. Incredibly beautiful film, but as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Peter Falk is his usual, charming self. That's about all I liked about this movie. The characters are one dimensional. The plot is weak at best. The obligatory "heartwarming" ending is beyond comprehension. This is one movie that, in my opinion, is not worth "checking out".

Was this just re-released? It was listed as 'just arrived' at the library.

This was a very heart warming movie, and a a pleasure to watch. It was a very moving film.

I picked this one up right away to see Peter Falk's performance in this.I watched Neil Simmons sunshine boys I believe? and loved the sinister cynical role in the film.His rol ein movies tends to be playing pranks on the important ones in his life.I love it!

Funny movie that had both charming with and silly humor. I thought the movies was set up for a different ending, but it still left me satisfied. Endearing film.

Watched it on a particularly boring day and thought it was an excellent movie.

Great indie film, superb actors for the better part. You hear about this sort of things and see it in movies occasionally, so it was interesting to see how the family members dealt with it. It was somewhat emotionally moving, made me value family more. Did it change my mind about having kids? Well before I was at a "fuck no", and now I'm probably at a solid "hell no".

i really enjoyed this - another 'feel good' movie kinda in the same vein as 'big fish' and it's great to see columbo (peter falk) excelling in the main role (and big up judge reinhold!). It is a bit slow tho and the love interest is really predictable. good fun nonetheless!

The story plays out like on stage... and has some brilliant lines.... mostly through Peter Falk, but the rest of the cast is equally clever. Choppy in some scenes and seems a bit too clean for the deep, suicide topic it covered.

Peter Falk is great as ever. This is not an oscar winning film but a light hearted comedy about family relationships. Worth watching

One of those great "you never heard of this" movies. It'll make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Falk is as good as ever and the rest give it their all; you couldn't ask for a better cast, just better material.

This was a great movie/play. It had one of those endings that was so happy I cried a little bit. Enjoyed it immensely.
