I couldn't disagree more with the other comment posted for this (unavailable..any body know of a release date for a DVD?) clever adult satire on the American dream and the life that accompanies it. Cockroaches are seen as one of the dirtiest bugs around, and what better metaphor exists than for them to be literally lurking right under the skin of a family that is awarded the 'Family of the Year Award'? The irony here is that slowly, the Applegates -the cockroaches we view as so beneath us- become corrupted by the vices of OUR urban culture: sex, drugs, greed, and selfishness, rather than the urban culture being infected by them. Yes, this film makes it's point lewdly, however, there is a gleeful self mocking absurdity that had me, even at 10 years old when I saw this movie, in stitches. If you are fortunate enough to encounter a copy of this film, I highly suggest you check it out. That is, if you can understand and appreciate clever satire.
