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.
If you thought Mad About You was cloying and gaggingly cute, this could give you the dry heaves.
About as entertaining as the yearly family argument, without any of the holiday turkey to make it worthwhile.
If you leave The Thing About My Folks thinking about your own folks, consider the movie a success.
