Hamburger joint waitress Sally Jackson is pregnant. When Beatrice, the wife of the father, finds out about his infidelity, she sends her sons from a previous marriage, military pilots Angus and Dorian Montier, to scare the living daylights out of him. Their gunship does such a good job, without hitting him, that he dies from a heart attack. Worrying about radio interference that night, they investigate who might have heard too much within the fairly empty reception perimeter, and soon discover only Sally could, still ignorant about her affair with his step-dad Henry. Dorian takes a job there to be sure, but soon falls for her himself, while mother-obsessed moron Angus would do anything to anyone for her honor...Written by
Robin Williams was originally going to play Red Jackson, but dropped out shortly before filming began. See more »
When Angus is in the helicopter chasing Dorian, Sally and his mom, we see through the windshield of the helicopter that the highway is blocked off by orange cones and police cars. In the previous and subsequent shots, there is traffic flowing. See more »
Mom, what'd you mean when you said Dorian was your favorite?
Oh, Angus, I love you both.

It's a difference of *this* much.

romantic and shy soul who loves to see Drew Barrymore play!
Beautiful film!! I have just seen it on the Dutch-speaking TV-channel KanaalTwee from Belgium! (Saturday 14 August 2004) With Dutch subtitles (although I can understand English very well!!).
Drew Barrymore is a very nice actress; I've seen her in "E.T.", "Never been kissed" and "The Wedding Singer"; all with Dutch subtitles in cinema in Brussels or at home in front of the TV. She looks great in all these movies!!
Luke Wilson (didn't know he was brother of Owen!) is handsome and has much potential for an actor!! He plays very nice!!
The story about pregnant Sally who falls in love with the stepson is not ridiculous to me! I am romantic myself; and can be very touched when seeing love romances on TV or in cinemas!
In "Never been kissed" Drew played a role which is somewhat similar to my real life; I am not handsome (beautiful)and I have been ridiculed a lot in my school period; I also fell in love with a teacher; I have been teased a lot... In most teenage movies there is also a guy who is a nerd; I feel like a nerd often but my high IQ (124) is not my handicap!!
Smart but ugly doesn't mean one should lock oneself up all the time! I have friends who take me as I am; who can laugh with my sense of humour and my language knowledge has lead me through difficult holiday travels (this year I go to Warsaw in Poland; I can easily understand English and speak German at a good level; Polish not!!)!!
"Home Fries" is a splendid movie to me!!!
