THE Family
17 January 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Three dead bodies, one of them a cop, two others discovered by Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson all are in one way or another attributed to the wealthy Christopher McDonald. You would think that McDonald whose family made their fortune manufacturing and selling toilets and accompanying fixtures would be happy. But that's not the kind of wealth for him.

McDonald is a collector of presidential memorabilia. But there's one item this man HAS to have in order to complete his collection. Not just so he can have a rookie Mickey Mantle card so to speak. But this will allow him to gain entry to that elite group of presidential relations. One of the deceaseds had a lock of the hair of John F. Kennedy and McDonald needs it to prove he's the product of one of Kennedy's numerous conquests. He's absolutely obsessed with the notion he's a Kennedy born on the wrong side of the blanket as that old expression implied.

We see where McDonald got his obsession from. Rue McClanahan has one wonderful scene with Linus Roache where back in the day she met JFK at a fundraiser and he whisked this married woman away for Bump-Ba-Da-Bump as Kennedy was wont to do. In a book about David Niven he was described as doing just that to Niven's second wife on the presidential yacht the Honey Fitz.

Roache does win his case, but he has to play to McDonald's obsession. His expensive lawyer tells him no, but McDonald can't help himself.

A really wild Law And Order story.
