The cast and crew explores the theme of dysfunctional family in the film and in real life.

A family full of eccentrics gathers for the funeral of their patriarch, and the quirky comedy can't be stopped, even as the tone gets darker as time goes by. First-time director Michael Clancy directs a talented cast of stars (including Zooey Deschanel, Ray Romano, Famke Janssen, Piper Laurie, Kelly Preston, Rip Torn, Debra Winger and Hank Azaria).
