In this black comedy, elderly Jack Scanlan (Jack Warden) passed awayjust as he’s about to tell his oldest son Johnny (Bob Hoskins) what he’s decided is truly important in life, which does little to ease Johnny’s mid-life anxieties. Jack’s funeral and the subsequent wake brings together the various members of the Scanlan Family, most of whom are having troubles of their own. One of Johnny’s sisters is divorced but hasn’t told anyone, the sister who is a nun is now into liberation theology and has an illegal immigrant with her, and Tony is fighting for control of his father’s union. Johnny and Terry (the divorced sister) both think that they may have found true love in the chaos (though what Johnny’s wife thinks of it is up for grabs) as Johnny tries to make some kind of sense out of the various strains in his family.
