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.

Reiser has given us a film that makes us laugh while contemplating the ways we understand and misunderstand those we love.

The film is a little saccharine and never as moving as Reiser expected. I know Reiser loves his father, but I didn't need to pay to be told it.
