It starts with a laugh, and the laughs continue throughout. The down-to-earth plot revolves around a funeral and associated family stresses. Whoopi Goldberg continues to present herself as a marvelous person that you would be privileged to have as a close personal friend.
The script portrays a small town family beset by common problems and coping with them in uncommonly funny ways.
There is not a weak member in the cast. Each player is convincing and displays a range of emotions that require extensive talent and training.
The music, lighting, sound, camera work, costumes, makeup, sets, and editing are flawless.
This movie will make you laugh (a lot) and cry (a little), and it will leave you feeling that the world is a better place than you had realized.
