A Thanksgiving get-together for the eccentric Turner clan goes from bad to worse when estranged daughter Nina makes a surprise visit home for the first time in 15 years. Nina clashes with her stepmother Deborah, and sister, Lindsay, while half-brother Jacob tries to keep a massive gambling debt a secret. Meanwhile, family patriarch Poppy has his own dramatic news to share. "Cold Turkey" is a black comedy about how - despite our best efforts - we all eventually turn into our parents. Starring Alicia Witt ("Friday Night Lights"), Cheryl Hines ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), Sonya Walger ("Lost"), Victoria Tennant ("L.A. Story") and acclaimed writer-director Peter Bogdanovich ("The Last Picture Show"). Written by Anonymous

16 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A horrible family holiday season movie. The characters, all of them, are scumbags, i.e. they lie they cheat they steal. Starting with Poppy the father who's is a fired retired prof from Harvard who is an alcoholic and with no good feature. He drinks he lies he cheats on his first wife. There is nothing he won't do with any ethical standard at all. I hated him as much as his family did. HIs son has lost a huge sum gambling in poker, and lies about how he lost money to Poppy directly, Everybody cheats sexually on everybody and hate each other for different reasons, and there is not even a soupçon of humor or life in this mess. I feel badly for the first film director as his piece of crap may sink his budding career. The acting was stilted stupid and lazy with no effort by any actor in the film to resemble a real human being. The perfect ending to this dreck would have been a mass family suicide to rid these people from existing. Otherwise burn the master print and any copies lying around, in a word Ugh!
