Summary
Ketzel Weinrach is barely coming to terms with the death and possible infidelity of her famous husband, Morty Tittelman, he who made a career out of dirty jokes. Her own career in comedy was derailed a while ago, and now her family sends her packing on an important assignment: go to Las Vegas and investigate the mysterious disappearance of her brother, Potsie. In Sin City, Ketzel finds plenty of opportunities to revisit her past and maybe even reinvent her career. She reunites with an old high-school flame, gets to know her teen niece, and even learns the truth about her deceased husbands dalliances. Pollack (A Perfect Life, 2016), has crafted a lighthearted family tale with an extended cast of lively characters (even Larry David makes a cameo appearance) who sometimes veer into Jewish stereotypes. But the close look at the extended Borscht Belt Jewish community is its own reward. A snappy tale of family and reinvention with a whip-smart heroine driving the action. Whats more, Ketzel, as her mom acknowledges, is a regular Charlie Chan
