Parker Posey was once quoted as wanting to stay in the independent film genre and not moving into the big budget films, and I say "Thank God!" We want her here! She is probably one of the smartest actors of our time, and this is probably one of the most brilliant scripts we may encounter. The fact that this movie relies on dialogue, and not sinking ships or laser wars, makes me think that there is hope for the cinema. I finished watching this film, rewound and watched it again, but not before shuddering at the fact that I found a movie that showcased incest so incredibly funny. Get this movie if you are interested in the fine art of acting because movies like this are what make it still an art.
Some may consider this film "good" or merely "excellent." Others, such as myself, view it as the crown jewel of all cinema. A low-budget, high-quality independent film about a family brought together for Thanksgiving brings the electricity of playwright Wendy MacLeod's words to gleaming ferocity before your very eyes. You'll be disappointed if you're expecting computer-generated asteroid collisions or giant space-robots: the focus of this film is doubtlessly its dialogue. Tori Spelling, a naive outsider (Is she acting? Who can say?), is suddenly introduced into this family and taken completely unaware by their sharp wit and seething mindgames. Characters banter effortlessly in the closest thing I have ever seen to verbal fencing. The cohesive family unit is clearly abnormal, which gives every frame of this movie a twisted and dark feel to it. This movie is a must-have for any fan of Parker Posey, because she shines on the screen as the...
This move is a trip. One I am sure some people will hate - but hey, it takes all kinds. Parker Posey's performance is just incredible. An unstable Jackie O' wannabe, her mood swings,rapid-fire one liners, and attitude make this film the winner it is. Bujold as the matriarch shows a droll comic side that I have never seen in her before and it is perfect with the dialogue she has. "Talk? Why would we want to do that, it only leads to trouble." A scene where she is trying to ship Tori Spelling off in a cab is hysterical. Tori Spelling does a good job as the naive Donut Queen who has no clue what she just walked into. I mean the poor girl grew up eating pancakes. Even Freddie Prinze Jr. does not do badly. Yeah the plot is sick: incest, assasinations, mental instability, jealousy and denial. But mixed up with this cast it is very, very funny. Strange and wonderful if you are the dark humor type.
