Credited cast:


Meet the Dunderheads. They may be the motley remains of an old Montana family who've been in the mountains far too long, but they're also as all-American as apple pie and murder. An eccentric, nearly mute Granny struggles to raise her socially challenged, teenage grand kids when the grandson "accidentally" kills his best friend. Confusion and mayhem ensue as the crazed family takes to the road in Grandmother's '63 Ford Falcon hoping to elude the local authorities. Grandmother believes Canada is their promised land but her total lack of reading skills sends them on a bumpy journey to Mexico, and reveals the secrets that have made the Dunderheads who they are in this both funny and poignant fable of the human family.

Wild road trip with dark twists and lots of surprises
24 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

I loved this movie. First and foremost for the acting of such original characters. Also, the look of the film is rich because of the locations and even the costumes. The amazing Olympia Dukakis as I've never seen her before--unforgettable. It's not a spoiler to say that Olympia has almost no lines; everything is done with grunts, looks and screams. All the acting is uniformly memorable, with a sexy and breakout performance from Alison Brie, and a surprisingly touching one from Haley Osment. The score and songs were energetic and fun, but never too dominant. An added plus is a very funny and gently ironic narration done by Phil Proctor, of Firesign Theatre fame.
