Too slight and cliche to really work, though Sarandon and Byrne do what they can with the material and elevate it somewhat.
I’d like to see a return to the ‘80s version of this genre that’s bit more cinematic and well-constructed. Scafaria’s script/directing are so loose and jokey, it’s missing the scalpel-sharp humor and heart of dramedy classics like TERMS OF ENDEARMENT. Sarandon is playing an overbearing Jewish mother caricature and I wish the character had a more specific personality.
Watchable, inoffensive, bland.
