Storyline

A family lives in a house that teeters precariously on the very tip of a mountain. The balance of the house is affected not only by the family that lives inside, but also their cow, dog, cat, a passing bird, and a man with a couple of sheep who returns in a car. The slopes of the hill themselves also seem rather slippery at times. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

It's all in the timing...
2 November 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A man and woman live on the very top of a mountain. As it's a very pointed mountain, their home balances precariously on it and rocks back and forth with every movement. Despite being a totally silly idea, it works very, very well due to the many wonderful gags that were used throughout the film. This is a very funny film from start to finish, but what actually caught my attention was the absolute perfect timing for each and every gag. Again and again, things seemed to occur at the exact right time for the biggest laugh. All this entertainment and yet the actual plot of the film is minimal!

By the way, don't worry about the film being made abroad--the language they use in the film is minimal and cartoony, so it's a film anyone can watch and enjoy provided the absurdity of the plot doesn't make their head explode!!
