Where's Poppa?

By Marshall Fine

Carl Reiner directed this wild exercise in bad taste, an explosion of dark comedy starring George Segal and Ruth Gordon. Segal is a beleaguered New York lawyer and mama's boy who still lives with his senile mother because he promised his late father he'd never put her in a home. So he spends his time alternating between work and trying to give his mother a heart attack so that he'll be free. That becomes more urgent when he falls for the nurse (Trish Van Devere) he hires to take care of his mother. Reiner and writer Robert Klane are equal-opportunity offenders, with jokes about rape, racism, and caca (yes, caca). But if you're in the right mood, it can make you howl with laughter.
