Go if you want to laugh and like being offended.
Risky Freudian punchlines
It's the Mother of all Jewish-mother joke films.
It's a shame, but you'd never be able to make a film like Where's Poppa? in today's stifling climate of uptight political correctness.
An insane black comedy that pushed the envelope even in 1970. It's really hilarious, but a bit shocking at the same time. Gordon and Segal are great actors and both give fantastic performances. I really liked this crazy movie.
A deranged comedy, with some deranged characters, that will have you laughing at it's deranged stupidity.
"Gordon, as the widowed mother, is in senile dementia constantly asking "Where's Poppa?" and scaring off nurses and Segal's girlfriends with her bawdy eccentricities. In her mental lapses she can't remember her son is a grown man, and when he brings home Trish Van Devere the mother suddenly describes the size of her son's sex organs as if he were a child. Van Devere as a prospective nurse looks like the Angel of Mercy with her sweet pure face framed in a white cap, but she is also a little insane."
This movie is hilarious. Not laugh out loud humor, and not raunchy like today's comedies, but still fu**ing funny as hell. Where's Poppa? is an intelligent, smart, dark and twisted little comedy. There's some pretty messed up shit in this movie and some hysterical, over the top, classic one liners, such as...
"He's got a pecker this big."
"And I want you to know that if you mess this one up for me, I'm gonna punch your fuckin' heart out."
"He made a caca on the bed."
You'll know exactly what I'm talking about when you see this movie. Funny shit!
Well acted, smart, funny, and Highly recommended!
For those who like their comedies sick and twisted.
One of the first comedies to truly revel in bad taste. Prepare to laugh at rape, incest, hippies, defecation and attempted murder. Segal plays the ultimate broken man and Gordon is amazing as his whacked out momma. If this film were released today I'm certain it would destroy careers rather than create them. Sad.
