In the wonderfully dysfunctional tradition of The Royal Tenenbaums, teenage years are always messy... but for Maude, things couldn't seem more tragic. Within one week just prior to her 18th birthday, she is suspended from school, stranded by her best friend, dumped by the boy she "loves", and Granny just died leaving her an enormous amount of money under one condition: Maude must go to college which she does not want to do and her wildly eccentric family is no help at all. Of course... It's a comedy! Written by monterey media inc.

Quirky, Funny, Highly-Recommended Film!
28 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

If you are tired of movies that are "downers" - full of torture, violence, war, the apocalypse, drugs, zombies, vampires - this film is a breath of fresh air. It's quirky, funny, totally off-the-wall and thoroughly enjoyable! Maude is a teenager in trouble at school but the situations are funny! (Her school counselor is great!) Maude's home life is definitely not normal (and rather bizarre) - yet it is funny! Maude's frequent (yet brief) therapy sessions are funny! Maude's imagination is funny! Maude's mother is like no other movie mother - and so funny! The slick editing of this film does not give you a dull moment! The dialogue is quirky and funny and unique! We rent a lot of independent movies and have to say that we enjoy them much more than almost all mainstream movies we rent. Highly recommend if you like films that are quirky, creative, unique, and funny!
