Trivia

The US Army (and the Reserve Component of each branch of the US Military) actually has a mechanism in place to prevent the problem Leslie faces in the film. Leslie states that her husband is deployed with the Army National Guard (a Reserve Component of the US Army) and that if she does not return to work soon, her children will lose their health insurance. Part of her husband's mobilization training would have included a briefing for the unit's spouses on the benefits they (and their children) would be entitled to while their Soldiers were deployed, including enrollment in the (free) military family health insurance program Tricare. Even if Leslie chose not to attend the briefing, her husband would have been aware of the availability of Tricare to her and the children (and would have told her about it). Even if by some calamity he didn't tell her about Tricare, someone from the unit's family support organization (the Family Readiness Group) would have told Leslie about the availability of Tricare.

Hilarious and creative film people are sure to enjoy
15 June 2008 | by se7en187See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, Michigan.

Kabluey is a wildly entertaining and hilarious film. Scott Prendergast, the writer, director, and star of the film, made a very creative comedy that's so much fun to watch.

Leslie (Lisa Kudrow) needs help taking care of her two wild kids because her husband is off fighting in Iraq. Her brother-in-law Salman (Prendergast) decides to help out, after all, he needs a place to stay anyway after recently getting fired. But Salman has no idea what he's gotten himself into. The two children (perfectly played by Landon Henninger and Cameron Wofford) are far too much to handle and do everything they can to make Salman's life miserable. And somehow Salman manages to get a job as a mascot for Leslie's company.

I loved this movie, it's a very clever script. Sure, it's sort of a familiar story about a guy trying to look after some wild kids, but there are so many original and inventive moments throughout, especially the entire story of Salman as the office mascot. I also loved all of the little touches throughout, things in the background that aren't don't further the plot but add to the comedy. And Conchata Ferrell steals the show a Salman's employer. Every moment she's on screen is hysterical, she's so perfect at comedy, I wish she had a movie of her own.

There are many huge laughs throughout this film. Everyone at the screening was laughing wildly and applauding during many scenes. It really is a wonderful film and I hope people get a chance to see it. Seek out this film, watch it, and then spread the word.
