  • The pretext of the movie, which was directed in broadbrush-cartoon style by Anne Fletcher from a coarse-textured script by Dan Fogelman, is a road trip taken by mother, Joyce, and son, Andrew. show more

  • A creakily old-fashioned comedy that forgot to pack the laughs along with the nudging and kvetching. show more

  • The film's feel-good message is undermined by its ultimate purpose: As a vindication of the rights of Jewish mothers to annoy their children as much as they please. show more

    This movie is absolutely worth taking some time out of your day to watch. It is definitely a clean, soft witty kind of comedy, with a heartwarming story, that teaches that even after growing up we may still have some growing up to do. I\'m 21 and both boyfriend and I enjoyed this film very much.
