Storyline

Sibling rivalry in spades. Against his better judgment, Jason and Shelly, his girlfriend of three years, drive across Colorado for Christmas with his dad and brothers. A fight soon erupts between Jason and his competitive, critical, and constantly-talking brother Todd. After Todd drops a bomb about Jason's parents, Jason drives off with Shelly toward Austin, Texas, to get to the bottom of things. Jason and Shelly object but Todd insinuates himself into the mix, and soon the brothers are competing in foolish games while Jason ignores Shelly. She bails, leaving the boys to sort things out with each other and with Overbrook, the place that might have the answers. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sibling Rivalry on Steroids
23 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I viewed this flick because it was FREE on the Comcast 'on-demand menu. It surprises me that it didn't open in theaters and come out on DVD. And why didn't it become a hit with the twenty-something crowd. I had no prior knowledge of the film, but the story line was continuously tense and brutally funny and the acting was grade A+. If you have any experience with sibling rivalry (especially between males), this movie will have you snickering nervously and occasionally laughing out loud. The only scene that might have been deleted from the movie was the puerile scene where they compete via a 'freeze-out' in the car. Otherwise the humor, acting, & directing were quite good. For a synopsis of the plot, you might check the other reviews.
