Product Description

Home Fries with Drew Barrymore and Luke Wilson.

Amazon.com

A man is frightened to death by a menacing military helicopter, piloted by two young Texan men who just happen to be the dead man's stepsons, Dorian and Angus (Luke Wilson and Jake Busey). To complicate matters, the dead man had had an affair with young Sally (Drew Barrymore), a clerk at the local Burger-Matic who didn't know the guy was married. Now she's pregnant and looking for a supportive guy to be her unborn child's potential father. Dorian fits the role quite nicely, but Angus thinks Sally knows about the helicopter incident, and their scheming mother (Catherine O'Hara) is trying to mastermind a cover-up, and....

So goes the cleverly amusing plot of this light, character-based romantic comedy, which proves Barrymore's charm and versatility once again, gives O'Hara one of her best roles, and moves right along at its own amiable pace. Small-town romance combines with darkly tinged comedy (scripted by X-Files staffer Vince Gilligan), and first-time director Dean Parisot guides it all with casual assurance. There's nothing going on here that's particularly inspired, but Barrymore and Wilson (an off-screen couple during production) make a delightful pair, and the cast makes the most of some hilarious down-home dialogue. All in all, a very pleasant diversion. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars dry humor is intelligently subtle but funnier June 23, 2003
Format:DVD
This movie is very funny. Appreciating it's dry, intelligent humor you will like it more every time you watch it. The characters portray a range of human traits that are humorous because we all know people representative of those traits. The acting was especially good on the part of Luke Wilson and Drew Barrymore. Wilson is so natural at it. His facial expressions are hilarious when his character is uncomfortable. His body language reminds me of what Jimmy Stewart does in some of his comedies. And Drew acts with charm and believability. Try watching the movie in closed-captioned you may notice more of the mumbled language that makes the movie funnier.
There are a lot of funny things but you have to pay attention to catch them. There is a scene where the sheriff and his deputy are walking away from a dead person in an old drive-in movie theater and they walk zig zag around the benches to get back to their car instead of climbling over them. One scene show Luke's character, Dorian, thinking of hamburger assembly while at a funeral.
Enjoy all the little subtle things: the trailing off conversations, the facial expressions, the body language. It's funny in real life so it's funny here too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Guffaws August 19, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Love it. Could see it again and again. Sweet romance, truly delirious black comedy, featuring the best and the worst of human aspirations. Two grown sons still trying to please their crazy-making, manipulative mother...chivalry and heroics in a burger joint...and real suspense amidst extreme characters and the loveliest subtleties in humor...Luke Wilson can do no wrong. So funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, funny movie October 7, 2005
By Jill
Format:DVD
I just love this movie. Drew Barrymore plays the charachter of Sally,who is really likeable and sweet.You can't help but fall in love with "Sally's" gentle, sensitive personality and the fact that she always trys to be the best person that she can be. Luke Wilson, who is one of the best looking men on the planet, portrays Dorian, an equally kind and lovable character who has to deal with a crazy mother & brother, while falling in love with Sally. "Home Fries" is a great movie about getting over the hurdles of life and fighting to be with the one you love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four examples of so-so cinema April 17, 2008
Format:DVD
WARNER's ROMANTIC COMEDY: 4 FILM FAVORITES is a collection of at-best middling movies.
Extra points however for top notch transfer quality.

SYNOPSES--

ADDICTED TO LOVE-- Sam's girl, Linda, leaves him for Anton, who dumps Maggie so he can take up with Linda. Sam and Maggie join forces to exact revenge on their ex's, but end up falling for each other. Director Griffin Dunne cast his father (author and OJ trial expert) Dominick in a small role.

HOME FRIES-- The married man who got unwed Sally pregnant is frightened to death by the guns his stepsons fire in his general direction. Fearing Sally knows they are responsible for the man's heart attack, one of the two takes a job at the hamburger joint where she waitresses. For Drew Barrymore fans only.

ROCK STAR-- Chris fronts a tribute band at night. His dead-on imitation of a heavy metal lead singer brings him an offer to front the group he's been copying. With this comes instant celebrity, and more. Based on a true story. (Drummer Jason Bonham is the son of Led Zeppelin drummer John B.)

SUMMER CATCH-- Local Cape Cod boy dreams of trying out for the big leagues, but he gets distracted by a beautiful young summer visitor. Minor roles for several sports celebrities, including former baseball bad boy Dick Allen (as the "scout in black hat").

If you'd enjoy four examples of "Love British Style," THE ROMANTIC FAVORITES COLLECTION is right up your mews.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird, but funny comedy-drama. May 23, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
"Home Fries" is basically a dysfunctional comedy-drama about two brothers out to kill their unfaithful father's mistress, a fast-food cashier, because their vengeful mother (Catherine 'O Hara) asked them to. The mistress, Sally, who is nearly 9 months pregnant (Drew Barrymore), unwittingly charms one of the brothers (Luke Wilson) and falls in love with Sally. Then, things go downhill. The other brother, Angus, figures out Sally is their dad's mistress, and Wilson wants to protect her, because Angus wants to kill Sally.
Despite the dysfunctional plot, "Home Fries" is affectionately charming, witty, and not exactly seamlessly fits comedy, romance, a little mystery, and drama. All in all, "Home Fries" is good family fun, despite its PG-13 rating.
Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, language, and brief violence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wild,Weird July 24, 2004
Format:DVD
Home Fries is an endearing dark comedy. The movie is filled with wild, weird twists and turns revolving around the death of a cheating step-father.The movie is flat out,laugh out loud funny. There is also a completely charming romance between one of the step-sons and the pregnant girlfriend of the step-dad.

Drew Barrymore is radiant as the girlfriend and Luke Wilson is perfect as her messed up suitor.Add Catherine O'Hara as the crazy Mom and Jake Busey as the going crazy brother-and you have a don't miss movie!
