Nobody else wanted to, but mother insists to participate in a twins - and multiples convention. Dad is forced to go talk to a future quints father, who concludes from the truth it's high time to run ...
The Chase 'quints', short for quintuplets, are the five children of Bob Chase and his bossy wife Carol. The eldest, hunky athlete Parker, is the popular pride and protector of his siblings, especially his brothers who look up to him and accept some superior insults and insinuations in exchange for his welcome help. Second brother Pearce is a nitwit; 'baby brother' Patton is cocky and pushy. Paige is an empty-headed but popular fashion-addict, her sister Penny is smarter but less popular.Written by
I think they were shooting for Married...With Children territory with this one, but they forgot to make it funny. They also forgot to leave out the "heartwarming, uplifting" dollop of sentiment at the end. The combination of unfunny low humor and unconvincing schmaltz adds up to DON'T WATCH.
Andy Richter is too ironic-sarcastic to fit in with the predictable cute-popular vs. goofy-unpopular teen dichotomy, which is itself far too obvious to be interesting. It doesn't help that the actors playing the kids are marginal at best, and completely unbelievable as siblings. Rebecca Creskoff is a typical sitcom mom, very much like the character she played on Greetings From Tucson.
