This sequel to Yossi and Jagger finds Dr. Yossi Gutmann reminiscing about his love ten years after his death; however, as he encounters a group of young soldiers, one of them, Tom, reignites his romantic feelings.
We become intimate with the "Sordid Lives" of a family in a small Texas town preparing for the funeral of the mother. Among the characters are the grandson trying to find his identity in West Hollywood, the son who has spent the past twenty-three years dressed as Tammy Wynette, the sister and her best friend (who live in delightfully kitschy homes), and the two daughters (one strait-laced and one quite a bit looser).Written by

Delta Burke's role was originally supposed to be played as a larger woman, but when she showed up on the set having lost a lot of weight, a pivotal scene was played as if she had lost the weight, but her neglectful husband hadn't noticed. (The role was originally to be played by Patrika Darbo.) See more »

This movie was so hilarious and entertaining! A friend recommended this to rent and I wound up buying the movie and soundtrack afterwards because I thought it was so brilliant! I personally don't have family members like these characters but I do know people who do! I think it was a real look at small town lower income family drama with alot of comedy! All the actors were brilliant and the comedic timing was perfect. When the film first started, it seems the quality of the film was shot on home video, but as the movies rolls on, you begin not to notice. It struck me that this might have been done purposely to add to the effect of the "white trash" the movie was trying to portray and it did make it more real like you're watching a friend's crazy family on home video.
