Storyline

The Webbers are your average American family. So average, in fact that they are selected by a television station to be the stars of their own TV show "At Home with the Webbers". They are moved to a new house that has cameras and microphones installed in it, and paid to just live their lives as they usually would. Their activities are taped and broadcast to the eager public. Television is television, however, and it isn't long before the demands of the viewing public and their new lifestyle take their toll on the Webbers... Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Uneven fun – Jennifer Tilly was never better!
11 January 2006 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Pre-dating the whole reality TV craze, "The Webbers" is about "an average American family" who agree to have their daily life broadcast on TV. Dad's a psychiatrist lacking patients; mom's a sad and horny housewife; son's isolated himself from the world after the death of his beloved girlfriend; and daughter's an aspiring sculptor obsessed with male nudes.

The film is hit-and-miss from start to finish, but when it hits the mark, it's a bullseye. Fans of Jeffrey Tambor in "Arrested Development" would probably get a kick out of his warped character here; fans of David Arquette would probably enjoy his sensitive portrayal. Jennifer Tilly, however, devours the scenery at every opportunity, in a portrayal that's hilarious and far more three-dimensional than the standard airhead bimbo that she always gets stuck playing (she even gets to sing a fun little song here!) – she's still an airhead and a bimbo, but it's a really juicy role. Robbie Benson also gives a memorably campy performance as a lecherous TV exec who tries to pit members of the family against each other to sustain high ratings.

It's a shame that this one went straight to video where it remains unnoticed all these years later. It's uneven, but has some fantastic moments, and it's a worthwhile time waster for fans of the cast, as well as those who are annoyed by reality TV.
