Storyline

Cathcart retires from the fire department and wants to live alone with his wife, which means he has to get his two sons, Quinn and Elliot, who are approaching 30, to move. They are unemployed slackers; their mom does everything for them. Cathcart takes her camping while leaving the boys a house without food, money, or electricity. Will the lads get the message, find jobs, and move out, or will they cling to life at mom and pop's at all costs? They take in boarders, who may be their salvation. Meanwhile, mom wants to come home and continue babying her sons. Can the house survive? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Guilty Pleasure
19 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Now I have to admit that this is a lousy movie with a lousy concept. I am typing as I watch this. The awful thing is I am finding it reasonably funny. Now not Blazing Saddles funny but amusing in a really dumb sort of way. Danny De Vito has made so much better films than this and he is the best thing in it, even though he does not appear much. The guys who play the sons in this(I cannot even be bothered to find out who they are) do an OK job but only OK not great. The guys who play their friends cannot seriously be contemplating a film career based on this outing. The writing is poor and the direction is so-so. As I state in my summary it is a guilty pleasure watching this and I feel like it is sucking the intelligence out of me. But I cannot stop watching it. Sue me or Kill me now!!
