User Review

A very funny dark comedy about a very dysfunctional family that will make yours seem normal. Very much worth watching. I say B

Rating:

"I bet we're the first family ever to be fired by their therapist" After the mother (Davis) of a severely dysfunctional family has an accident and hits her head she wakes up with memory loss. She learns what she was like and what her family life was like and the entire family gets a chance to change. This is very very funny dark comedy. By very dark I mean it opens with someone accidentally hanging himself spying on the mother in bed. From there it gets darker and more and more strange. For those that like edgy humor seen in "Death To Smoochy" or newer movies like "Peep World" and "Super" then this one is for you. If you are easily offended I would stay away from this one. I however thought it was very funny. The only problem was that it got a little repetitive toward the end. Overall, a very funny movie that is not for everyone. I give it a B.

*Also try - Peep World
