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.

The nondescripts meet the caricatures
18 February 2000 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

The plot couldn't be simpler. "My girlfriend's family turns out to be weird." Nothing wrong with that, except that there's nothing lovable about the weirdness (the closest to lovable is irascible, that's Lloyd Bridges) and the boyfriend and girlfriend are just cardboard figures themselves. Alexandra Wentworth is still beautiful, chipmunk cheeks and all, but she looks too mature for a college kid. We're supposed to identify with the male lead, but to see the scene through his eyes is to see a world that is neither attractive nor believable and the movie just doesn't reward the effort.
