John Patrick Amedori,
ACCIDENTAL INCEST is a hilariously entertaining dark romantic-comedy. If you haven't gathered from the title, the film is anything but "safe" and is full of content that will make you cringe as well as laugh. It's irreverent humor at its absolute finest. From the warped minds of director Richard Griffin and writer Lenny Schwartz (based on his off Broadway play no less!), the film very seldom (if ever) lets up with the amount of on-screen insanity. Not only does incest figure into the plot, but also crime and violence, cuckolding, leather garbed gimps, and (without giving away too much), Nicolas Cage! The fact that the film is almost entirely in black and white aids tremendously in conveying the film's bleaker moments and manages to well, make the experience feel even dirtier! Did I mention there are musical numbers? Yes, by the time the movie has ended, you'll have figuratively had multiple kitchen sinks thrown at you. One musical sequence in particular is so well done that it rivals (or even surpasses) Griffin's infamous "Jesus Song" from NUN OF THAT. The filmmakers deserve a lot of credit for not playing it the least bit safe with this one. There are few movies that can be so fun while also making you uncomfortable, but ACCIDENTAL INCEST is definitely one of those films. The cast of Griffin regulars all perform well, but Johnny Sederquist stands out foremost as the male lead. He's got an intensity that matches Kinski or Nicholson levels and he is perfect in the role of Milton (coming complete with a creepy level 3 offending tongue tic no less!). Despite being much more understated in comparison, Elyssa Baldassarri is also great in the female lead role of Kendra (Milton's sister). It's nice to see her and Sederquist as main players for a change and Baldassarri has got quite a bit of charisma as well as beauty. In sum, ACCIDENTAL INCEST is an extremely satisfying film that will make you smile as much as want to take a shower! You'll be hard-pressed to find many movies like it.
