Reuniting the Rubins (PG)

Comedy, Drama, Family

One man's mission to follow his dream is comically halted in its tracks at the request of his dear, but difficult, aged Jewish mother who is hell-bent on seeing her warring dysfunctional grown up grandchildren together one last time before she dies.

The critical consensus

Rubins ultimately sinks beneath the weight of its own gubbins.

**(*)(*)(*)Catherine Shoard, The Guardian, 20/10/2011

The result is more like a cheap, uninspired ITV bank holiday drama in which a decent cast is left stranded by a lousy script and lifeless direction.

Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 21/10/2011

Spall is lovely as the weary pater familias, though he's working uphill most of the time.

**(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, Independent, 21/10/2011

An ensemble piece wobbling between undercooked drama and low-powered farce.
