Simon, 35, has returned to live temporarily with his father. They make life unbearable for each other. To add spice to this situation, Uncle Maurice and Aunt Mala, Ernest's brother and sister, meddle in everything and, notably, try to find a "nice little Jewish girl" for Simon to marry. When Ernest passes away, Simon fulfils his father's last request: bury him in the village where he was born, in the depths of Ukraine. And so Simon finds himself caught up in an event-packed road movie in the company of his paranoid old uncle, his aunt who nags him endlessly about his "Goy dancer", his six-years-old son, his father's body and his ghost, and also a rabbit. Not to mention his ex who hassles him by phone. The journey will be nothing like a cruise down the Nile!

The entire production is really lousy. There are giant holes in the story line that get filled with the kind of convenience elements a high school level writer would utilize. Christian Slater came across more like a 10-year old playing cowboy then being a cowboy. I tried really hard to care about any of the characters but they were so thin that there wasn't anything to care about. Phoned in performances from Southerland and Slater were a huge disappointment. Fuck this movie.

Jedoch ist es ebendieser Charme, der ihn dann wieder besonders macht. Die Werbebranche wir grandios karikiert und Jean Dujardin spielt die Rolle des dauerbreiten Octave wirklich toll. An Ideen (man betrachte die zwei Enden) fehlt es auch nicht, aber um ein umwerfender Film zu werden, reicht es eben nicht. Denn allzu pathetisch wird's zum Schluss - oder auch nicht? Ich schtze, das Buch ist lesenswerter...

Linda P (mx) wrote: Loved Josh Hartnett in Penny Dreadful (2014-2016ish). Guess that was about fourteen years after this dreadful movie which tried to be funny but was basically just awkward- one long, tasteless sex joke which became boring. Hartnett wasn't horrible in a role that gave him nothing to work with, but the plot was hideous. Plus, someone thought rape would be an amusing way to break the character's fast while simultaneously providing a roadblock to "true wuv." Yuck. If only Harnett could have picked better films.

Doris W (kr) wrote: When I was a child, this was one of my favorite movies that I would watch again and again. It's got racing, it's got singing, it's got out-of-control kids and a grown-up who learn lessons from each other... what else could a 7-year-old want? (besides ice cream)
Tobias R (mx) wrote: A fun movie if you don't take it seriously. Jane Russell is charming, sassy and fun. Worth a watch on a rainy weekend.
Darren R (kr) wrote: There aren't as many jokes as I would have expected from early Hanks or the ever-zany Dante. There's plenty of good stuff here, but overall the film is stretched too thin.
