This was disgustingly funny!
6 April 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Director Larry Kent explores how far you can go with comedy. We meet are deeply troubled family with sick sick problems like incest and pedophilia and all this, is mixed with comedy. Bizarre scenes are followed by many more bizarre scenes, and Kent has in my opinion successfully made deeply tragic and disturbing issues funny which I think was the whole idea behind the movie. To explore how far you can take it. It's sick but funny and original. The acting isn't really the big factor in this film but they all played there part good. It was especially interesting to see Carly Pope who many will know from the teen show Popular who gives it has a totally hot but sick Lolita type named Candy who thinks wise and old men can teach everybody so much and she is sure she can become a genius if she spends time with them. Surprising to see her play this character. But she only plays a small part so don't just see it for her. Thumbs up - but certainly not for everybody!
