Dealing with family is hard, the rest is just gravy. Thanksgiving is a time when families get together to eat good food and share in the spirit of thankfulness. That is, of course, a best case scenario. Some families are so tangled in a web of drama from financial issues, relationships, and so on that lead to big blow outs or worse, long awkward silences. This is the story of one of those families.
I was able to attend the world premier and have to say, this exceeded expectations! The whole theatre could not stop laughing, there were times were I even missed part of a scene because of the non-stop-laughter. The jokes, while crude at times, fit the scenes perfectly.
The cast was phenomenal! Majority have worked with director Couto before and he knows how to best make use of their acting abilities. I can't think of any scene where an actor underperformed.
A few of the actors went above and beyond, in my opinion: Bradley Diehl stars as David and fits the archetype of overcompensating jokester who hides his feeling behind any type of joke he can make. He even dips into non-joking emotions in a great scene with Haley Jay Madison.
Todd the Fox is a newcomer to acting, in fact I think this may be his first role! His scenes with the amazing Erin R. Ryan are very reminiscent of Overnight Delivery where two strangers bond over a road trip. Most of the time he is a calm and collected person, never losing his cool even in the face of someone screaming at him. As time goes on and the road trip continues, he slowly loosens up and shows a variety of emotions. He did a great job and had great chemistry with Erin R. Ryan, who did the usual amazing job. I look forward to seeing him in more movies! Mike Hilinski did a spectacular job with his character. I can't go into much detail to avoid spoilers but halfway through the movie his character is taken in a very different direction and he tackles the role perfectly. I would even go as far as to say one of his lines was the second most laughed at scene in the movie, and in a movie full of deep laughter that's saying something.
This movie should definitely become a staple for Thanksgiving.
