Storyline

Cathcart retires from the fire department and wants to live alone with his wife, which means he has to get his two sons, Quinn and Elliot, who are approaching 30, to move. They are unemployed slackers; their mom does everything for them. Cathcart takes her camping while leaving the boys a house without food, money, or electricity. Will the lads get the message, find jobs, and move out, or will they cling to life at mom and pop's at all costs? They take in boarders, who may be their salvation. Meanwhile, mom wants to come home and continue babying her sons. Can the house survive? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Avoid it like the plague and BREAK any Dvds you find, unsuitable for viewing
28 March 2017 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

In this very offensive and unsuitable for viewing film, Danny Devito and Katey Segal are the parents of two lazy-bottom young men. Devito retires from the Fire Dept after 25 years and, at that point, realizes how shiftless his kids are. Wife has been taking care of the them for years. So, Devito kidnaps his wife and takes the camper out of town, to stay until the young adult sons learn how to take care of themselves. Admittedly, there are a few laughs at the beginning. When the fire truck escorts newly retired Devito home, an energetic cheerleader-gymnast does handsprings right into the fire truck! In that same scene, the VERY challenged sons manage to turn the main water spout on full blast, shoving a young girl on a tricycle against a wall. But, not long after that, very offensive language and scenes start to add up and this viewer had to turn it off and pitch it into a waste basket. What a shame, since the premise was clever and Devito is always a funny, funny man. When a film advertised for general viewing should have been given an NC-17 rating, that's a big problem.
