Michael, a college student, visits his girlfriend Gabriella and her family for Christmas in Canada. When he gets there, she tells him that she doesn't love him any more. Meanwhile, her family is exceedingly strange: her father is a writer who spends most of his time wandering the house nude. Her grandmother mistakes Michael for her dead husband. Her two sisters express interest in him. Granny escapes the hospital and heads back to her home in the woods, and the family chases after her, and Michael is kept reeling. Written by Ed Sutton <>

The film is fiction, the family is real!
16 February 2000 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

The family in Some Girls are the Taylors of Montreal...the screenwriter actually dated one of the Taylor sisters and fictionalized them into this movie...The father is actually world-famous philosopher and McGill U. professor Charles Taylor. Their late mother *was* very Catholic...and the legendary house is real- an old wooden Metcalfe Avenue mansion, in Westmount- since sold, but still there. Of course, this film annoys them to no end - so don't mention it if you're invited to
