Run Time 96 min

Legendary comedy duo (and real-life husband and wife) Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara star as the constantly bickering couple at the center of this sprightly comedy from writer-director Joan Micklin Silver (Hester Street, Crossing Delancey). When Sam (Stiller) stubbornly refuses to get rid of the new pet carp he's unleashed in their bathtub, Molly (Meara) finally decides she's had enough and moves in with their married son Joel (a young Mark Ruffalo). Desperate to get his mother out of his hair (and house), Joel enlists his boy-crazed travel agent sister (Jane Adams) to help repair their parent's relationship—meanwhile he's tempted toward infidelity by a flirtatious client (Missy Yager). Replete with Micklin Silver's signature wit and loving lensing of New York's city streets and suburbs, this little-seen gem is fun for the whole neurotic family. A Cohen Film Collection release
