From aboard the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Smith talks to the cast of "Teen Wolf" about the solemn yet celebratory panel for the upcoming season. This news and more in our Guide to Comic-Con.
This is a comedy about a very strange and very screwed up family. When it comes to keeping secrets and not talking about what is really happening, these people take the cake! This short film begins with some grown children having Thanksgiving with their mother. She tells that that she and their father are divorcing and yet none of them act surprised. After she leaves, the family no not put away the food, but instead set up dinner AGAIN because now Dad is coming with his new girlfriend and they don't want him to know that they had a dinner without him!! So, when Dad shows up with a very, very young and sexy fiancée, once again the kids don't act like it's such a big deal--or at least most of the kids. One, the only apparently normal one among them, reacts...and everyone behaves as if there's something wrong with her! This sounds like a terribly depressing film,but it's actually a very funny comedy about a dysfunctional family who never deals with things that are painful. It's insightful and clever throughout and a great film for people to watch so they can say "wow...and I thought MY family was a mess!".
