Tying the Knot

by James Beller

Directed by Daniel Douek

When Michael announces to his mother Arlene that he is getting married, it is the happiest day of her life. But when he tells her he’s marrying Pauline and not David, the boyfriend with whom he broke up three months earlier, Arlene is not merely shocked, she is outraged. Turning the stereotypical parental reaction on its head, Arlene uses every arrow in her quiver to try to prevent this “disaster” and make sure her son marries the right man and not the wrong woman!
