Not a comedy
20 February 2014 | by (Victoria, BC. Canada) – See all my reviews

This is billed as a comedy, but it is not. It is a story of a highly dysfunctional family.

The house is decorated in the most ugly 1960s style you could conceive. The furnishings came from a thrift store.

The father is a bully, though he stops just short of beating his family. He threatens them with guns. He is a bit like the Great Santini, pushing his family around as if he were a drill Sargent. He later becomes an alcoholic.

Mom is an alcoholic, barely conscious.

The three daughters are fat, and not very bright. One smokes non-stop. One gets pregnant by a gross older man. They are selfish and unkind to each other.

Only one character is in the least sympathetic, the fattest daughter, a lesbian, with a flair for carpentry.

There are a couple of awkward sex scenes which are funny in their dreadfulness.

The movie opens with mom in a casket. The film winds back in time to explore how that came to be.

It is a bitter film, not a funny one.
