Incredibly black comedy, the story focuses around a New York lawyer (George Segal) who is dominated by his senile mother (Ruth Gordan). He wants to get rid of her so he can marry the woman that he loves, but if he does, he will have broken a promise he gave to his father on his deathbed not to put his mother in a nursing home, and will be guilt-ridden for the rest of his life. There are plenty of hilarious scenes in this, though some of the humor may not be to your fancy and the story moves at a leisurely pace. But, if you have time, rent it. It just might be an enjoyable experience.
