Quotes

Marcia Prior Glass: ...This party isn't for you anyway. It's for our little unborn nephew... God save him from your genes.
Nancy Pecket: Don't talk about my child like that!
Marcia Prior Glass: He's not a child yet, dear. Just some protoplasm doing the backstroke in your uterus. Besides, I'm sure he couldn't even hear me.
Nancy Pecket: You really hate me, don't you?
Marcia Prior Glass: No... Not at all. Do you hate a dog for peeing on the carpet? Of course not. She can't help it; it's her nature. You just have to leave her outside.
Nancy Pecket: ...You *really* hate me.

That bitch is evil!
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An outstanding film from Arthur Allan Seidelman, based upon a play by Richard Alfieri (Puerto Vallarta Squeeze).

Maria Bello just dripped sensuality in every word and movement throughout, except when she was spitting venom like "This party isn't for you anyway. It's for our little unborn nephew... God save him from your genes." Or, "Harry... Harry, if you want to withhold approval, intimidate and give rewards or punishments... buy a dog." She was the child of incest by her father and that rape caused her immense pain that permeated every relationship. It is a fact of life, and I have never seen it more brilliantly displayed. Alfieri captured the lifelong torture in his word, and Bello displayed it with emotion that made this film.

That is not to say that Bello was it entirely. Eric McCormack ("Will and Grace") had a pain of his own and he was absolutely dripping with venom in his snide remarks and eventual explosion of the bottles up anger. A man afraid to revel his feeling for fear of rejection, he got to the point where he could no longer contain.

Elizabeth Banks was the perfect "white trash" that felt out of place in this family - and she was, marrying the out of place brother Alessandro Nivola. Mary Stuart Masterson was also extremely good as the sister who could not reveal her pains either due to her position at the school. Rip Torn added perspective as the professor who read headlines out loud.

Great performances from all and a film worth your time.
