In Santa Monica, a woman becomes alarmingly concerned over her fiancé's unnaturally close relationship with his teenage daughter. In Westwood, a sexual act turns into a psychological obsession for a young woman. In West Hollywood, a gay couple buys a young daughter and attempts to mold her to fit their lifestyle. In Holmby Hills, maladjusted kids and their equally maladjusted nanny play murderous games. In Sherman Oaks, a rape victim faces her violator. In these five stories, one thing is clear, everything is taken to extremes in California.Written by
Unbelievably funny, underrated and misunderstood !
First of all, a lot of comments here made me laugh too: Overacting, bad acting?
I guess some people don't realize the kind of acting fits perfectly in each story.
A hysterical housekeeper, Stereotype gay men, and so on. In my opinion 'overacting' and 'bad acting' belongs in these scenes and stands as a house..
Some of the stories are predictable, but that didn't kill any of the fun for me.
Even when some endings are kind of a given, the timing is that surprisingly good, it even takes some predictability away.
A lot of the dialogues are unbelievably funny and the cast is well chosen!
Shannen Doherty (even how little her roles are), makes you forget all her bad acting in the past. The gay couple is hysterical and the scarry daughter in the first story is very credible!
If you like dark humour, with sharp dialogues, my humble advice would be: go watch this underrated, misunderstood and witty film!
