The film captures Kutsher’s three family generations that brought in top names in entertainment, including stand-up comedy and sports, such as Alan King, Billy Crystal, Jerry Steinfeld, Joan Rivers, Muhammad Ali, Wilt Chamberlain, and many others. Activities at Kutsher’s included Art, Bridge, Bingo, golf, indoor/outdoor pools, ping pong, facial make over spa, lectures on health and nutrition. In 100 years, millions of people generation after generation have visited and enjoyed Kutsher’s. The Kosher food was elaborate and abundant serving three meals daily including a Chinese and Italian entrée. Welcome to Kutcher’s is indeed a wonderful family film, about a wonderful family getaway.
