"An earthy, intense, tangy look at one mother-daughter relationship. Kind of like a Jewish-American Joy-luck Club. It’s even got Mah Johng. Only with matzoh balls instead of wontons."
- C.R. Zwolinski
 

"Unflinchingly honest!"
- Richard Zwolinski, LMHC, CASAC, Psych Central
 

"Leaves the spectator in stitches without any surgical suturing. It's emotional graffiti on celluloid."
- Molly Castelloe, Ph.D, Psychology Today Blog

 

"This film is funny, sad, candid and insightful. It's a film for anyone who has ever had a mother or ever had a nose."
- Frazier Moore, AP Television Writer
 

“You have a great style and infectious on camera presence and your mother is a force.”
- HBO
