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.

A truly original comedy in the vein of "Spanking the Monkey"
3 July 2000 | by (Granville, Ohio) – See all my reviews

One of the best little films I've seen in a long time. Don't let the box art on the video fool you, this is NO family film! It's a highly original combination of romantic comedy, gross-out humor with a little bit of heart. Josh Charles (from Sports Night) is an "angry young man" writer who goes to meet his girlfriend's family in Savannah, Ga. The girlfriend is played by Alexandra Wentworth who I've never seen before but she' s funny and sexy and believable, I'd sure go to Savannah for her! Lloyd Bridges is funny/threatening as Wentworth's father, apparently this was his last film (I thought he died after "Mafia" can someone clear this up).

His performance is truly outstanding in this movie. But, in addition to the performances, this director shows flashes of a really whacked-out imagination -- there's a scene with a talking severed toe, a vomiting scene that I can hardly describe and some dialogue that'll really take you by surprise.
