Jon has it all, great job, beautiful wife and kids, and a dream house. But when his father, who is a little senile, burns his house trailer down while his mother is in the hospital, Jon brings his parents to live with him. Soon his wife goes home to mother, he's fired for suspicion of insider trading, his sister and her unruly kids get booted out by her boyfriend, and moves in, he's about to be evicted, and his assets are frozen. How could things get any worse? Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Forget Leonard Maltin!
25 February 2000 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

Forget Leonard Maltin's comments. I can't remember when I laughed so hard. Sure, it's slapstick. There are plenty of cheap jokes and visual cheap shots. But there's just enough irony (McDonalds/McDonnel's) to make things interesting. An hour and a half of pure escapism and belly laughs.
