Show Info -
Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, or peanut allergies, there was a simpler, awesome time called the ‘80s. For geeky 11-year old Adam (Darien Provost) these were his wonder years and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy.
The Goldbergs are a loving family like any other, just with a lot more yelling. Mom Beverly (Wendi McClendon-Covey, Bridesmaids) is a classic “smother”; an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries. Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin, Curb Your Enthusiasm) is a gruff, hot-tempered father who is learning how to parent without screaming after a recent health scare… and having little luck. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17, hot, terrifying and not one to mess with. Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16, a grade A spaz with a classic middle child syndrome. Adam (Sam Giambrone) is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who’s crushing on an older woman, 15 year-old Zoe. Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who’s schooling Adam in the ways of love. When Pops buys a new sports car and offers his Caddy to middle child Barry, it’s enough to drive this already high-strung family to the brink of chaos.
From Adam Sandler’s production company Happy Madison, directed by Seth Gordon (Identity Thief, Horrible Bosses) and inspired by writer and Executive Producer Adam F. Goldberg’s (Breaking in, Fanboys) own experiences growing up as the youngest child in a highly screwed-up but loving family comes a hilarious new comedy, THE GOLDBERGS.
