Funny, Sad, and Educational, 30 October 2012
Author: Adam Demshar from United States

1. I really enjoyed this movie! I get a kick out of all the White's wild behavior just as much as the next guy. However, sometimes things go a little too far and it is hard to watch. For example, in the scene taking place during Mattie's birthday things get ugly fast. The poor old woman cannot even exist peacefully in her own home without all of her degenerate children traumatizing her. Later in the movie we are shown the after effects of the years of drug abuse. When Kirk's baby is taken from her, when she has to leave her older son, and overall just the negative effects the drugs have had on these people over the years. I think that showing this movie to youth drug recovery groups would be useful as well. This movie doesn't glamorize this lifestyle at all. It shows it for what it is. I highly recommend.
