Storyline

Michael, a college student, visits his girlfriend Gabriella and her family for Christmas in Canada. When he gets there, she tells him that she doesn't love him any more. Michael attempts to see what is happening. Meanwhile, her family is exceedingly strange: her father is an atheist writer who spends most of his time wandering the house nude. Her mother is a devout Catholic who bears eccentricities of her own. The sisters along with Michael visit their grandmother at a mental institution, where she mistakes Michael for her dead husband. Meanwhile Gabriella's sisters express interest in him. Granny escapes the hospital and heads back to her home in the woods, and the family chases after her, and Michael is kept reeling.

Quotes

Nick: You know, I've never been faithful to anyone in my life. I just told Irenka about someone and, uh, she did not take it too well. If there's trouble, I just feel trapped and miserable, and I just wanna' go.
Michael: If you have to choose between grief and nothing, you'd choose grief.
Nick: [scoffing] Huh. What's that gotta' do with anything?
Michael: Just something William Faulkner said.
Nick: Yeah, well, fuck that. This is me we're talkin' about. I'd choose nothin'. Grief's fucked. It's just depressing when these things end,...

Twice by Accident
12 January 2004 | by iwatcheverythingSee all my reviews

I actually watched this movie twice. It wasn't on purpose I just forgot what I was watching until about 20 minutes in and then I didn't mind watching it again. The film isn't great but was a good movie. The plot was kind of out there and you kept wanting more of the sex but that is not what this film was actually about. This is more of a drama and the end is kind of sweet really. The acting is not bad either. Most of the actors are not well known but I knew two of them. If you have some time check this film out but don't expect a comdey.
