Storyline

An off beat family of New Yorkers must come to terms with their own misgivings about life, relationships and the sheer unpredictability of love itself. Petunia weaves together the lives of brothers Charlie (Tobias Segal), Adrian and Michael (Eddie Kaye Thomas) as they unlearn everything their psychoanalyst parents have taught them. While Michael's cynical wife Vivian (Thora Birch) discovers she is pregnant, the family is also changing. Charlie's would be boyfriend George (Michael Urie) is in a polyamorous relationship with fitness fanatic Robin (Brittany Snow) and Adrian has developed a unrelenting sex addiction. Meddling parents Felicia (Christine Lahti) and Percy (David Rasche) must decide whether to reignite the spark in their relationship or start all over again. Petunia is a film about a dysfunctional family unit on the verge of a nervous breakdown. This is the story of how they pick up the pieces. Written by Anonymous

The worst movie I have ever seen
25 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE movie! I didn't believe it could be as bad as previous reviewers said it was, but I was wrong. They were right!

I admire those who held out for 40 minutes and more. They deserve a medal! I hit eject at 9:32, after Christine Lahti (didn't she use to be good?) said, at her son's wedding, "Tell him his ear wax is making me nauseous." I mean, I'm from a dysfunctional family, but even we weren't ALL obnoxious morons like every single person in this horrible movie; and we weren't even rich!

Has there ever been a stupider screenplay than this? A more clumsily wasted group of actors? More incompetent direction?

This is by far the worst movie I have ever seen, and I've seen Plan 9 from Outer Space.
