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

Sad, sad film on so many levels
9 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

What will you learn of this movie?

a) Sex addiction can be cured if you get together with a woman that is plump. Plump means every girl with actual thighs qualifies. Because you will be so grossed out, that you'll never think of sex again. No, that is not ironic, just wait until the last scene of the movie, if you can.

b)If you're dieting and talking about it, it's because you have a problem, not because society will treat you like the plump girl above. The lesson is to be skinny and pretend to eat anyways.

c) Psychiatrists or therapists don't know what they talk about. Their methods are bullshit and they're horrible mothers.

d)If your marriage is down the drains you can restart it by taking Viagra.

e)Older women are hilariously vapid and ridiculous with their fillers and such. So same lesson here as in b) Look young and skinny and do everything for it, but DO NOT tell or you are to be made fun of.

f) If you do not want to have a kid or give it up, you're despicable and do not deserve or are able to give love! You must be portrayed as a drinking, heartless whore! What else could you be?

There are other characters, but they are too boring to even comment on them.

Basically this is a movie about how much the director or writer looks down on women.
