Sometimes the fruit falls very far from the tree. Paul Reiser and the legendary Peter Falk team for the delightful family comedy, The Thing About My Folks. When his wife of forty-seven years leaves him, Sam (Falk) embarks on an impromptu road trip with his son, Ben (Reiser). Forced into every adventure from fishing, to drinking, to pool, the two confront old demons and discover a bond they never knew existed. Now, together, maybe they can solve the biggest mystery of both their lives... women!

Critics Consensus: The Thing About My Folks lacks cohesiveness, and the cloying tone makes the talkiness grating.
