The Grombergs are highly successful New York family -- except when it comes to communicating with each other. Three
generations of a family, each in their own dysfunctional way, live their own separate lives but find a couple of moments in
time to come together through laughter and tears and remind themselves they are attached by blood.
Mitchell Gromberg (Kirk Douglas
), the patriarch, is having difficulty coming to grips with his mortality. His son, Alex
), has spent his life trying not to duplicate his father's mistakes, while Alex's eldest son, Asher (Cameron
Douglas), a rebellious college student, tries to cope with life, love, sex and rock 'n' roll in today's confused society.
They all struggle to get from one end of life to the other -- the younger Grombergs try to figure out where they are going
while the older Grombergs try to figure out how in hell they got there in the first place.
Absolutely disgusting. No plot, bad acting, a total waste of time and money. Give it a miss.
I thought that this was a really touching and poinagnt film about life in a not so perfect family. The Douglas`s did a fantastic job and the Culkin boy shines in his odd boy role. About time someone made a funny/sad movie about a family like those on your street.
