Drunk Parents


When rich people lose their money, desperation, invention and hilarity ensues. The jokes feature physical comedy, brand and product placement, wine snobbery, character humiliations, obscure sensibilities, jabs at spoiled kids, Craig’s list and ebay. My favorite was a short rant about Warren Beatty’s little-known oeuvre Mickey One, a notable wink to film nerds. Plus, the soundtrack features notable new music by Andrew Feltenstein and John Nau.

Quick Takes

In an era when many people are losing their jobs, being furloughed or just plain out of work, it’s comforting to see people who apparently have bigger problems and how they cope with them. The cast is notable for playing roles outside audience expectations. Comedian Jim Gaffigan in spandex, The Politician and Dear Evan Hansen’s Ben Platt in a wheelchair, Salma Hayek doing physical comedy while wearing “double Spanks.” Will Ferrell and Colin Quinn offer a combustible cameo. Added surprises for audiences include Treat Williams, Aasaf Mandvi, and Joe Manganiello. — Arlene Schindler Read More
