A bright, hilarious family road trip right up there with Flirting With Disaster. When Eliza (Davis) finds a love letter she thinks is intended for her husband, she turns to her family for advice. Her overbearing mother (Meara) packs the whole Long Island family into their station wagon and off they go to Manhattan in search of an explanation. Like fish out of water, the bickering Malones hit the town in search of the possibly philandering Louis (Tucci). Posey, as Eliza's mini-skirted sister Jo, is feisty as ever, and Schreiber brings an All-American freshness as Carl, Jo's aspiring novelist boyfriend. A subtle delight.
