In this zany comedy, the renowned New York playwright Blumenthal (Brian Cox) is dead, having succumbed to cardiac arrest while laughing at his own jokes.
No one is particularly distraught: not his estranged and jealous brother Saul, a constipated college professor of English; not Saul's wife, who seeks solace in the arms of the dog walker who supplements his income by providing non-dogwalking services to others; and not Blumenthal's son, a pharmaceutical rep who doesn't want his non-Jewish girlfriend to convert because then she'll be "enthusiastic."
Blumenthal is sure to delight audiences with its witty dialogue, jazzy soundtrack, and Manhattan scenes.
