Hilarious episode because of "Uncle Leo"
17 July 2008 | by (Greensboro, NC) – See all my reviews

This episode is hilarious. Frank is voted Man of the Year by his lodge. Ray & Robert decide to film a video tribute to show to their dad during his awards dinner

They show up at the lodge to film the tribute video - only to find out it is a bunch of old men that like to swim in the indoor pool and sit in the steam room - NUDE!. This episode is great because Len Lesser is in it - he played Uncle Leo on Seinfeld. I crack up just looking at him! Anyways, come to find out, everybody at the lodge hates Frank. The boys start shooting video and when they ask the men what they like about Frank, they say "Nothing"! Then they go on about how he owes them money, wrecked their car and other shortcomings.

The boys don't know how they are going to pull off the tribute video. Then they decide they will edit the guys' statements to make it come across in a positive light. They do this by asking men what they think about...chocolate! Then they film the men's responses. Which include statements like.... love it, great, wonderful,etc.

When they show the video at the dinner, Frank ends up walking out. The boys ask what's wrong - he says it's a "piece of crap". He goes on about other men's tributes lasted 30 minutes, his only lasted minutes and didn't make sense. He wants to know why some guy likes him "with marshmallows and graham crackers"? Then he storms home, followed by Marie. They get into a fight as usual. But after she goes to bed and he finally comes to bed - there is actually a very tender scene between the two of them. They are both marvelous actors! This episode was a lode of laughs - especially because of Len Lesser.
