Elliott Gould and Jemaine Clement play father and son in this thoroughly engaging comedy from Sam Hoffman, writer of the hit web series Old Jews Telling Jokes. Struggling playwright Nate (Clement) moves in with his joke-telling dad when his wife kicks him out. Struggling to get his life in order at his father’s New Jersey retirement community, Nate reluctantly agrees to coach a group of elderly women mounting a concert version of The Mikado. Turns from Bebe Neuwirth, Annie Potts and singer Ingrid Michaelson boost this slick and funny film.
