Storyline

A decorated firefighter has his wife and son leave him because of his violent tendencies, including playing a game of Russian Roulette with his wife. Only trouble is he believes that the loving neighbor couple and their two children are to blame for them leaving by filling his wife's head with nonsense. He then sets out to discipline the family for their failings. But when the couple reports him to the police, the police will not believe the couple because of the fireman's status in the community. Things escalate until he kills a repairman, then the police and finally launches a totally terroristic attack on the family including again playing Russian Roulette with them.

Good idea, bad delivery.

Lot's of inconsistencies in this film. People soaking wet in one room & dry when then enter the next. Charlie is seen pushing the neighbor's car down the street because he didn't want it in front of his house. Problem is he's in the middle of the street with a parked car on his side of the curb. How'd he get this car away from the curb & be able to push it without keys? The setting is during a record heat wave & the neighbor's air conditioning is broke. Yet when Mom puts the kids to bed, they are under sheets & comforters. It's an unintentionally funny movie.
