Daughter Kelly is foul-mouthed; their son Eric is a militant Christian and an excellent shot. Bunnie's rich mom tries to control things. While a dead peeping Tom hangs undiscovered in a tree outside their bedroom window, Bunnie sustains a head injury and wakes up unable to remember anything after the first days of their marriage. Her newlywed sweetness infuses the family as Jack sorts through issues at work, Eric discovers flaws in his Christian posse, and Kelly makes friends with a lesbian classmate. Can this change of personality last? Written by <[email protected]>

First off, Christina Hendricks fans: don't waste your time. She's in
the film for all of three minutes (long enough for the camera to linger
longingly on her chest, of course) and otherwise doesn't have much to
do with the plot.
While pleasant enough, this movie comes off as slap-dash and unfocused.
It just doesn't know where it wants to go, which story/character it
really wants to follow. This is partly the fault of being based on the
"dysfunctional family" trope, which works best when we still manage to
care/sympathize/identify with at least one of the family members. The
problem here is that we can't: the mother's a bitch, the father's an
impotent robot, the son's a gun-obsessed Jesus freak (the gun obsession
serving only to telegraph the ending), and the awful mother-in-law
doesn't actually appear until the very end of the film. Only the
fake-slut daughter comes off as somewhat sympathetic, but the film
refuses to focus on her character, and she remains somewhat of a
stick-figure (figuratively and literally).
The lack of focus comes through from the very beginning: the film
starts with a voice-over, of the gun-freak son, but abruptly drops the
voice-over, only to revive it again at the very end -- in order to give
a film-standard wearily wise "look at how much we've learned" speech
that doesn't really work. The voice-over might have worked better if
the son had been the central character and the film had been meant to
examine his growth -- but he isn't and the film doesn't.
All in all, it appears the director/writer didn't have a clear idea
about what movie they were making. The result is a slapdash, unfocused
Still, for all that, the movie was pleasant enough to sit through, with
a few funny bits and good performances from the actors. Not something
I'd recommend paying for -- wait for it to hit cable.
