Warning: If you're from the south, do not watch this film.
I really liked this film. However, as I stated above, if you're from the south and have a sense of humor, then you are given the permission to watch this film with open arms, otherwise, don't watch this film if you're going to find it too offensive. Alright ya'll?
The Grubb family is the epitome of American trash---they don't have the proper education nor ambition to drive them out of their downbeat trailer-house, daisy dukes and cold slurpees. The plot narration revolves around Rena Grubb (Jena Malone) and her low-incomed family living somewhere in the South. The Grubb's are invited to attend a annual picnic to go see their father. Later on the audience finds out that this "annual picnic" is set up for criminal offenders.
If one word were to describe this film, it would be "trailer", and I think everyone who has been continuously watching Indy films with Brad Renfro and Jena Malone in it definitely knows what that means. I don't think anyone should be surprised with the content. Yes there is self-cutting, sex, teen pregnancy and drugs in it (done by the one and only Alicia Witt of course) I give props to whoever made up the jingle to: "Welcome back Jay, welcome back Jay, welcome back Jay Jay Jr."---this song defines the whole movie and shall go down in history in my book.
