Storyline

Peter Silverblatt is a liberal writer from New York City working in Los Angeles where he meets and falls for his dream girl and inspiration to write: a Southern belle named Melanie Branson. But Melanie inadvertently opens a Pandora's box when she invites Peter to her hometown in Georgia to meet her conservative, but highly eccentric and dysfunctional family who include her two exasperating brothers Larry, and Dink, and her cranky, meddling father who'll do anything to break up the happy union between Peter and Melanie... anything includes trying to set Peter up with the local town tramp Laurel Lee.

Solid if not memorable
16 May 2005 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

Lloyd Bridges steals this film as an aging Southerner who tries to break up his only daughters relationship with a city boy.

Josh Charles and Alexandra Wentworth handle the young couple leads well, as Wentworth has to go home and help take care of her ailing father. Her eccentric brothers, Beau Bridges and Olkewicz, are driving her insane, so she persuades Josh Charles to come down south and save her from a breakdown.

Josh Charles is obviously a fish out of water down south, not blending well with the local character. He tries his hardest to impress his lovers family, but can't seem to meet their expectations. He is forced to compromise his principals by hanging a Confederate flag and accidentally calls God a twisted serial killer, which places him in the doghouse with Wentworth's obese brother.

There are plenty of laughs to be had here, thanks to Bridges and Charles' interaction. Plus the only Buffy in my book, Kristy Swanson, adds some flavor as a southern sexpot.

Pick this up, you won't be disappointed.
