We get the distinct feeling this film has been made by people who don't really want to offend their friends, who would rather spend a million dollars impressing others as opposed to throwing it away on hunger relief or American education.
As director, Scott Marshall displays an unsurprising flair for selling a joke, but also a fine sense of dramatic pacing and, even better, a gift for brevity, neither of which, it could be argued, are innate skills of his famous filmmaking family.
While Marshall opted to pass up something dry and acidic in favor of a big bottle of Manischewitz, his movie is not without its pleasant charms, thanks to an energetic cast that manages to keep up with Marshall's highly amusing dad, Garry.
