Michael Lerner as Ira Stuckman
“When Do We Eat?” is the story of the “world’s fastest Seder” gone horribly awry. It’s about an old school dad (Michael Lerner) who’s as tough on his sons as his father (Jack Klugman) is on him. On this night, however, one of the boys (Ben Feldman) slips Dad a dose of special, psychedelic Ecstasy in order “to give him a new perspective.”
Meanwhile, Mom (Lesley Ann Warren) brings a handsome stranger to dinner and the kids take sides. By the end of the night, however, Dad’s visions turn him into a modern day Moses intent on leading this hungry group to the promised land of family forgiveness.
Of course they’re all so stubborn, it’d be easier to part the Red Sea.
