The actors in this suburban comedy all shine, breathing Bronx life into their characters. A story of a stagnating family descending into unhappy lives, the film delivers smiles aplenty as it weaves its contrived but appealing plotlines. Sharply written, well-directed, and acted perfectly. A rare comedy that’s actually funny.
