Keep it in the Family is a weird, generation gap comedy that was made in Montreal during the hippie era and is very dated but is still amusing to watch for those who grew up at that time. The story is about a young couple who want to be married but cannot afford to get their own house so they conspire to raise the necessary funds by sexually blackmailing their respective in-laws. What ensues is not exactly hilarious but is definitely interesting. The film certainly deserves points for creating it's own flavor and feautures a bizarre look at families.
