review by
Mike Haberfelner

For a very private reading of her deceased husband Will's (Jamie Insalaco) will, Wendy (Katie Weigel) has invited his best friends, who all might be benificiaries. And it's "very private" because Will has smuggled some money by the IRS, and understandably, after his death he doesn't want those he loved have to pay for it. Besides Wendy though, the ones he "loved" are his no good twin brother Wayne (also Jamie Insalaco), Wendy's high school sweetheart lawyer Steve (Greg Vorob), comicbook store owner Dave (Dan Conrad) - who also happens to be the father of Wendy's child and doesn't know it yet - and unstable psychoanalyst Tom (Marc Seidenstein) ... and they all could do with some money desperately. Even the pre-reading dinner is a bit of an odd affair then, as nobody (including Wendy) is caring half as much about the deceased as they're caring about his money, but the reading of the will's a big of a shock as Will has hidden his money well - and the only clue he left in his will are a couple of vague clues that send everybody on a treasure hunt - but not all parties play fair ...

 

Now this is one fun movie, taking one back to a time several decades ago when comedies could still be incredibly dark and light-hearted at the same moment, when the focus was still on story over spectacle, and when ... well, a song-and-dance number at the least appropriate moment could still brighten things up. That said, Will Reading is certainly not an old-fashioned movie by any stretch of the word, it's just a fun comedy about a very morbid subject, carried by a well-conceived script, great characters and solid performances ... and a very carefree attitude towards movie conventions of course (thus the song-and-dance scene for example). A total hoot, actually!
