Unsure of his own motivations, he makes up excuses about why he’s staying – his flight is delayed; his flight is canceled – but while his doting mother (the director’s real mother) is more than happy to enable his procrastination, his father (the director’s real father) grows suspicious of his sons changes of plans.

  1. 100
    One of the sweetest, saddest stories Franz Kafka never wrote.
  2. Beautiful, wise, and poker-faced comedy of discombobulation.
  3. 90
    A highly unusual combination of craft, emotion and integrity.
  4. 83
    A comedy of sorts, though to Jacobs' credit, he doesn't aim for cheap laughs.
  5. Reviewed by: Scott Foundas
    80
    Wryly comic, sometimes heartbreaking and altogether original film about a thirtysomething Angeleno who pays a visit to his aging New York parents and finds himself unwilling or unable to leave.
