I consider Walters the top screen actress of the past 20 years -- I'd pay to
watch her read Direct-TV fan letters. She makes ordinary movies (Stepping
Out, Sister My Sister, Clothes In The Wardrobe, etc.) seem quite good -- and
good movies (Educating Rita, Prick Up Your Ears, Just Like A Woman, Billy
Elliott, and Calendar Girls) seem great whenever she's on the screen. Here,
she has a perfect role for her immense talents as a working class
Liverpudlian Mum faced with the sudden arrival on her doorstep of the son
(Paul Reiser) that she was force to put up for adoption forty years ago.
She gets the use he entire spectrum of her immense talents: the auditory,
the physical, the facial nuance perfection, the movements, the humor, the
Happier still, the combination of terrific supporting performances by the
entire cast, believable people as its insightful characters, and a wry
screenplay that manages to deliver many smiles, titters, and the occasional
belly-laugh. Kudos to Director Weed and Screenwriter/Co-Producer/Cameo-Actor/SNL-Alum
Tim Kazurinsky because accomplishing all this is no trivial task -- when
you've had a chance to think about the plot. The shamefaced story-line is
ye olde "I'm-a-rich-New-York-Doctor-dying-of-cancer-so-my-mother-told-me-I-was-adopted-so-I-could-crash-into-the-lives-of-my-birth-mother-and-her-family-members-in-impoverished-Irish-Liverpool-so-I-could-try-to-find-a-bone-marrow-transplant-while-learning-insights-from-my-new-culture-where-I-am-a-fish-out-of-water."
Moreover, the movie gets its largest incredulity out on the table right in
the beginning. Paul Reiser's Dr. Jerry Lipman is actually purebred Irish!
In my mind, I think I can see Weed and Kazurinsky selling this to a producer
saying, "Think of Terms of Endearment crossed with Local Hero, then salted
with two shakes of Flirting With Disaster, finished off with a dollop of
But, the acting is so good, the people so genuine and interesting, and the
screenplay so full of disarmingly dry wit and wry observations, accented by
some clever background inclusions by Director Weed, that it all works
wonderfully. Reiser's love interest is his sister-in-law, but in this
context, we're okay with that. Amy Robbins, who plays Maureen, comes across
as a terrific actress in her own right -- and somehow gets away with making
no bones about the fact that although her human-being chemistry with Reiser
is adorable and their sex is great, inside her true self she knows that it
still pales against the latent-yet-ubiquitous animal chemistry she feels for
her hunky-but-no-good ex, roguishly played by Ian Hyphenated-Name. The
heavyset Brian Daughty also scores well as feckless brother Frank. Olympia
Dukakis and George Wendt are ideally cast in their minor roles as Reiser's
adopted mother and brother.
In short, if you can stand a bit of TV-movie-type production values and
obvious cuts for commercials, and you have some tolerance for a dollop of
treacle, catch this one on Showtime if you can.
