Get your titles straight -- this is the good one, and a roaring good time.

East Is East is "The Full Monty" of 2000, a fresh, funny and poignant film filled with sparkling performances.

A robust family comedy that saves its wildest moments for a climactic "get-together."

May be the funniest movie about parental and spousal abuse ever made.

He (Puri) is one of the most consistently excellent film actors that his country - or the world - has produced. And East is East, a grand cultural hybrid, is a real movie, too - raw, funny and wonderfully mixed up.

O'Donnell has a fine eye for the small details of life and the movie feels rich, warm and real .

This engaging ensemble comedy that could have been called ''Father Doesn't Know Best.''
