a great "Weird Like Us" comedy!
1 June 2003 | by (South Hadley MA US) – See all my reviews

This movie will appeal to fans of Kentucky Fried Movie, Groove Tube and TunnelVision. Its main difference it that is has one storyline throughout the length of the film, while the other 3 were composed of many short skits. The non-PC humor, raunchy jokes, and dysfunctional family were highly amusing and a refreshing change from ordinary comedies like "Seinfeld" crap. I especially liked the several points when they did a mock audience poll to determine what would be seen next. 3 out of 4 times I choose the correct one.
