“The Big Five-Oh” tells the story of George Thomas, who is turning 50 on Saturday and has had a terrible week. His dog is sick, his son is a slacker and his daughter wants to marry a Republican. With a neurotic wife and a widowed neighbor providing more challenges than even George can overcome, this may be the worst week of his life. Through these trying days, George will discover the wonders of family, the responsibilities of parenthood and the results of his latest physical. “The Big Five-Oh” is a hilarious, sometimes touching account of a grown man coming to terms with his age, his relationship with his son and his future.
