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.

The reason this film is rated so poorly is that it had the most misleading preview ever. It was marketed as a feel-good low-IQ no-surprise white-bread movie that Ronald Reagan would have applauded. Instead it was a dark and original exercise that is well worth seeing. It has an audience, but they didn't go. (I only saw it because one of my filmy friends bugged me until I agreed to give it a chance.) The people that did go based on the preview were ironically exactly the wrong audience.
