Hilarious Satire spot on about the current state of America!
30 May 2016 | by Jake WSee all my reviews

Right on time for the Summer of Trump! I saw this film at the LA premiere and was blown away by how funny and biting it was. Ron and Laura are the typical conservatives, but the film also makes fun of the crazy liberals running around in the movie too! No one is spared in this sharp satire that sometimes is arch, other times is screwball -- and the film brings up some serious subjects (the son is Gay and wants to be accepted by his conservative parents who are against Gay marriage) Jim J. Bullock is hilarious as the Gay reality star designer Ron and Laura mistakenly think is a conservative hero, and Sally Kirkland steals the show in a moment not to be missed. England and Markham are a great comic team together - their chemistry is priceless. Truth is stranger than fiction, and this movie hits so close to home you laugh and cry at our current state of affairs!
