Storyline

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.

Whacked and weirdly wonderful
11 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A crazed grandmother on the lam with two teenagers. Other reviews summarize, so I won't repeat. This film is kind of a grab-bag of treats. Really good performances; you've never seen Olympia Dukakis like this. Alison Brie is sexy and hilarious as a kind of over-grown backwoods Lolita. Haley Joel Osment is genuinely touching, all grown up now. I don't usually like narration, but the narration in this was actually helpful and funny. The voice sounded familiar and as the tail credits rolled, I learned that it was the venerable Phil Proctor from the old Firesign Theatre. The movie kind of left me speechless at the end, it was so weird, unusual and touching. And very funny in many ways.
