"The Thing About my Folks" came in as a surprise. We had no idea about
what to expect. The film directed by Raymond DeFelitta, and based on a
screen play by one of its stars, Paul Reiser, proved to be a pleasant
time at the movies. Although the film is predictable and we know what
will be the outcome, this is a voyage of discovery where Ben gets to
know his father, perhaps for the first time in his life, Ben sees his
father for what he really is, and not the mythical figure he has in his
The film seems to be a vehicle for its star, Peter Falk, and he runs
away with the movie, as it was expected. Mr. Falk, one of the most
endearing actors working in movies in this era and in past years, is an
actor of such stature, he must be reckoned with. As Sam Kleinman, the
distant father to Ben, he is a man that clearly is misunderstood, not
only by Ben, but it appears by the whole family and his wife of
When Muriel, the matriarch of the Kleinman clan, runs away, everyone
goes into a panic because this woman, who has been the strong figure of
the family, is vital to keep everyone together. Not knowing where she
has gone, Sam shows up at Ben's house confused as he feels abandoned,
suddenly, by the woman he married and has been faithful for all those
Ben, the youngest son, takes his father on a trip to look for a house
he wants to buy so he can get his own family out of Manhattan into the
country. The trip provides the excuse for Ben to bond with his father
in ways he never knew about because the old man had always projected an
aloof figure to his younger son. Along the way, father and son realize
how much they love one another and how misunderstood the old man has
been by his children. The love of Sam for Muriel spans the many years
they have known one another; they seem inseparable.
Peter Falk is magnificent in the film. He makes an excellent Sam
Kleinman, the man who suddenly realizes his life is about to change for
the worst. Mr. Falk shines as the older man and there's never a false
movement in his interpretation of the man whose whole world is
crumbling under him.
Not being a Paul Reiser fan, we must confess that as Ben Kleinman, he
is right. Ben and his father discover how much in common they both have
and their love for Muriel, the mother that has sacrificed her life in
order to keep the family together. Olympia Dukakis is only seen at the
end of the film. She makes a good contribution as the fleeing mother.
Elizabeth Perkins plays Rachel with great style..
The film has a beautiful look thanks to the cinematography of Dan
Gillham, and the excellent musical score by Steven Argila. Ultimately,
the film shows a great team effort between its director, Mr. DeFelitta
and Paul Reiser who wrote it for the screen.
Although this film is clearly targeted for an older audience, it should
