A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
A comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional.
In the final scene in the Hummer, the advertising is clearly posted over all the windows of the vehicle, bar the windscreen, in the next shot, from inside the Hummer, the windows are clear, with no advertising visible. See more »
I saw this at the Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, Michigan.
This was an okay movie, nothing really special. The first half of it was good, but then it sort of went the traditional route and didn't seem very original. It's about a family that's having some money troubles. Beau Bridges plays a single father who marries single mother Rosanna Arquette. The son comes up with a way to fix the money problems. To get back at his half sister, he puts a video camera in her room and puts the footage on the internet. It becomes a big success so he decides to put cameras in every room in the house. The result becomes one of the first reality shows ever, and he is the only one in the family that knows they are being watched.
There were just too many plot holes and some of the characters seemed pretty pointless (especially Jessica who arrives late in the film and does absolutely nothing). And the ending was pretty weak as well.
It's probably be best to pass on it if it comes to theaters, rent it if you're a fan of the stars, but other than that, this is a movie to watch at home when it's on TV.
