I was surprised when I saw this movie because I was suspecting a horrible B movie and it turned out to be an hysterical studio level movie. I saw a screening at the HBO Comedy Film Festival in Aspen and I thought it was the best movie I saw all week. I can't believe it didn't get a theatrical release.
It has a great ensemble cast and a great plot. Everyone wants their fifteen minutes of fame, but how crazy do you go when you get it. In this movie the family goes completely overboard when they get there shot at fame, which I felt was really funny.
I am looking forward to seeing it again when Warner Bros releases it in August.
