Storyline

When Dave and Vicky were growing up, their parents had it easy. Back then, there were no "time-outs," no one had any "boundaries" and their parents had no idea what their kids were really up to. Now Dave and Vicky have teenagers of their own, and anything their kids might even think about doing, Dave and Vicky have already done at least twice. But knowledge isn't power, it's a giant pain as every day is a battle to keep their kids in line. Fifteen-year-old Larry isn't exactly a frequent diner at the 'cool kids' table in the cafeteria, while 16-year-old Hillary is a know-it-all and is just emerging onto the dating scene. Meanwhile, thirteen-year-old Mike is all hormones and video games. Dave and Vicky figure if they can send these three off to college without a police record or kids of their own, they've done their job. This witty, irreverent show goes inside the heads of a modern family through the use of a confessional space where the characters reveal everything they could never ... Written by DesertShark000

Tripe
12 September 2005 | by pfogertycaSee all my reviews

I knew I was in trouble when the laugh track began crackling before the first character even completed a sentence. The writers of this show think they're pushing the prime time sitcom envelope by having the dad say "penis," the mom visualize herself having sex in the backseat of a car with an African American teenager, a son dress up like a woman, and a daughter pretend to date a black boy in order to shock the folks. The trouble is, without a good, solid story, these things just aren't funny (unless you're eight years old and giggle when you hear a grown up say the name of a private body part).

What's meant to be shocking is instead just plain boring, not to mention in bad taste. It doesn't help that the actors, particular Michael Rappaport, are horribly miscast and appear to be genuinely uncomfortable playing their parts.

This embarrassment of a program should be renamed "The Bore at Home." If the execs at Fox have any business sense, they'll shove this mess down the disposal immediately.
