Storyline

Chris (Ike Barinholtz) and Kai (Tiffany Haddish) agree not to sign an oath of loyalty to the United States for tax incentives. The deadline is Black Friday and a politically-charged Chris focuses on getting through the holiday with his family while he pours over the news regarding The Oath. The day after Thanksgiving, he and his family are surprised when agents show up to interrogate him. As the situation escalates, they must decide how to stay out of jail and protect their family.

It's an amusing movie, give it a chance
5 January 2019 | by rsofianosSee all my reviews

Entertaining because any time with the family is hard work, especially with strained relationship and then add politics (fictional political scenario) into the mix. The political aspect is a little funny & scary as it's something that could one day be implemented, but that's what made it relatable... our fear of 'The Oath'.
