Starting as a doo-wop group in the late 1950s, the Isley Brothers rose to fame with their 1962 single “Twist & Shout,” and for their Grammy Award-winning 1969 hit, “It’s Your Thing.”

Directed by Dee Ford, it’s the story of Nick, an Italian-American guy from New Jersey and his annoying-but-lovable grandparents who will do anything to keep him from moving away — including finding him a girlfriend.
