I watched because I was oldish and was tired of just young centered videos...but I was uncomfortably aware of being ALL ages while I watched. I was the callous child that was irritated at the demands of my parents, the child that felt bad and guilty for not giving more, the elder that was disgusted with the child that cared so little, the elder caught in the steady downward decline, and the anticipator of being locked away in a "home" among living, drooling vegetables with no more purpose or joy for my life.
THIS FILM IS THE TRUTH. I have been on ALL ends of it, including staff, and it is the complete truth. BUT it is entertaining, and humourous in a black way. ANYONE THINKING OF PUTTING THEIR PARENT IN A NURSING HOME should see this...it IS what the residents feel like...and do yourself a favor and go see them every blasted weekend...no matter how negative and demanding they are...no matter what a guilt trip they put you on and no matter that they don't appreciate it at all. They will be gone, and you will torment yourself with knowing each day they had nothing and no one in their lives, and how you could have done more.
