Whoever said life is better after fifty had better be right! George Thomas is turning fifty on
Saturday, and it has been 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. It is the story of a middle-aged man finally growing up.
