Storyline

In this convoluted story of lust, deception and accidental murder, Paddy Raye is the owner of a small Los Angeles appliance store whom is also a domineering and philandering patriarch who deals with his neurotic wife Elaine, their punk wannabe teenage son Gunner, and their sexually ambiguous older son Julian. Paddy is having an affair with his slutty, but cunning, young secretary Gloria. When Gloria finds out the Raynes will be out of town for the weekend, she enlists the help of her not-so-bright brother, Louis, and his ditsy girlfriend, Justine, to break into the empty house and steal the payroll money Paddy takes home on the weekends. But Louis and Justine get more than they bargained for when they find the house not empty -- and find themselves trapped in the middle of a full-scale family squabble with no means of escape, except to administer a little "tough love" family therapy.

This movie puts the fun in dysfunctional!
18 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This darkly funny, expertly executed comedy proves there's no sophomore slump for Amber Benson's writer/producer/directorial abilities. Christine Estabrook's performance as Elaine is nothing short of AMAZING. This movie puts the fun in dysfunctional. You've got a dysfunctional family, dysfunctional burglars...even dysfunctional law enforcement! You start laughing early on and never stop thinking. Amber does a great turn as Justine, the adorably bungling burglar with a heart of gold.

The orchestral score is sublime...the icing on an already deliciously yummy cake. This movie is an amazing piece of art. Anyone who has grown weary of some of the drivel Hollywood has been mass producing lately will find this movie experience a breath of fresh air.

Watch it today with someone you love...or hate.
