All Mitch Snider wants for his family is a traditional holiday feast with the relatives. The problem is that he doesn't have any. That is until he gets an invitation in the mail from his long-lost cousin Woodrow. What follows is a full-course meal of nonstop laughs when the neurotic suburbanites clash with the hippy hicks from hell in National Lampoon's most outrageous family misadventure yet. Written by
I liked this film with Bryan Cranston as the Hippy poor cousin Woodrow Snider, town outcast, and Judge Reinhold as the straight-laced Los Angeles doctor. Both men have two wives one played by the fabulous under-rated Penelope Ann Miller and the other by Hallie Todd who does a great job as being the straight woman. Mitch wants a family and get together with long lost relatives in Idaho for Thanksgiving, the traditional American holiday. They get invited and are unaware of the Sniders in a small Idaho town. Cranston and Miller have great chemistry as Pauline and Woody versus the doctor and his suburban wife. There are great moments in the film like when they realize that their Idaho relatives are nuts and crazy than eating last year's fruitcake. In their case, they learn a lot about each other from each other. It's kind of a silly, comedic television movie so there is no swearing or inappropriate kinky behavior. I love the actor who plays Uncle Phil. I'm surprised this film didn't get a welcome reception or isn't shown repeatedly on television around Thanksgiving. It's a nice film.
