A teenage girl and her father driving cross-country become stranded when their car runs out of gas in a remote Nevada desert town and they're forced to stay in a dilapidated trailer park where a serial killer lurks.
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

The branch of the military seems to change between Dorian and Angus. Each man is wearing the uniform and warrant officer insignia of the Air National Guard(a reserve component of the US Air Force), yet they fly a Cobra helicopter(which belongs to the Army, not the Air Force) AND Dorian later identifies himself as belonging to the Army when filling out a job application for Burger Matic. However, each respective state has a Army and Air National Guard. It's quite possible Dorian misspoke and meant to say the Air Force OR both brothers were prior service members( meaning they served one contract in the US Army National Guard and then re-enlisted in the US Air National Guard).

I'd like to be the father-to-be.
You can't be the father and the brother! That's the kind of thing that messes kids up!

Home Fries is a fantastic movie, but the marketing scheme behind it all had little bearing in regard to the actual movie. If you saw the trailers or commercials, you'd have thought the movie was a romantic comedy. The relationship between Luke Wilson and Drew Barrymore's characters plays only a small part in plot, and even then it's not the type of interaction you'd see in a romantic comedy.
This flick is pure dark humor. The near-incestuous relationship existing between Dorian's brother and mother is both odd and extremely amusing. It's definitely not the type of movie you'd expect to see from the way it's been presented. Kudos to the casting director. Each part was cast extremely well.
