I wanted to like it, but just couldn't buy into it.
Couldn't believe Bridges, in the early scenes he's pure ham with a rancid edge. Comedy is not his genre.
Couldn't believe Bridges would be married to Arquette and having hot sex all over the house.
Couldn't believe the premise that the world would keep watching, even after it became clear that everyone knows they are being taped.
Could have worked, if the scale had been kept realistic: if the success of the show and commensurate payday were such that the family could have at least pretended NOT to be in on the joke. A little less would have been so much more...
Instead, it just insults the intelligence of every character, and the audience as well.
