This film follows Harold (Played by Arrested Development's Michael Cera) on an unusual and uncomfortable trip into the home of the Darlings.
29 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Best use of taxidermy ever. Darling Darling is a hilarious piece of candy that tastes like original film-making at it's best. Michael Cera of Arrested Development mastered his portrayal of the awkward teenager once again. Even the old people attending the Palm Springs Film Festival couldn't help but enjoy this "twisted tale." Director Matthew Lessner has a style that I can say is truly unique. Keep up the good work Matt. This is such a cheesy post but I need to fill up 10 lines. Everything is true though, it really is great. If you get the chance to see this film and you don't go see it then you should feel bad and cry a lot knowing it was probably your only chance.
