Description

After he breaks up with his wife, aspiring playwright Nate (The Flight of the Conchords’ Jemaine Clement) reluctantly moves in with his father Bob (Elliot Gould), a widower who communicates almost entirely through old jokes. Insisting that his son needs to be more disciplined, Bob pushes Nate to get involved in the retirement community where he lives. Soon Nate finds himself in charge of staging a musical starring three eccentric women. Resistant at first, he finds an unexpected connection with these women, leading him on a journey of self-discovery. An endearing comedy with standout performances by Annie Potts and Bebe Neuwirth.
