The tall tales she's compulsively spun, while her brother was away in "France", cause them both to trip-up constantly. She is so caught up in her own world of lies that I think she even believes them herself; she actually cannot control herself. Her brother being in another country, and not prison, is what she starts conning the family members with. These hilarious excuses never cease, they just get more and more absurd. She has his life all fashioned out everywhere and in every possible situation to save face for him and to account for his years in away. The hardest part for him is that he has no idea ahead of time what excuse or the reason she has concocted while he's walking into these impossible scenarios clueless. It's all ludicrous and wildly funny.
Allen underplays all the overtly comical parts in this film. He seems to let all the rest of the cast shine, and they do as the cheap shots are abounding. I hadn't even heard of this movie being released to theaters, let alone for a rental on Amazon. I just wonder where this one was hiding out. You get what you pay for with this one, and that's one funny time with a movie. We all loved it in our family (we do enjoy Tim Allen's humor).
There is a full ensemble cast in the movie (Ray Liotta, Kelsey Grammer, JK Simmons, Julie Bowen, Jeanne Tripplehorn, among others). It was unexpected, although extremely inviting, to view each new actor come into play along with a witty script backing all of them. Each and everyone shows up for their roles in good measure and good company. A fun go-to movie that you will not regret if you appreciate the comedy of Tim Allen or are just beginning to.
Not a great plot by any means, and ex con trying to make it......but Tim Allen did actually serve a little time many, many years ago so he actually brings that to the role which most actors never do (and not that its a bad thing the other guys have not been to prison...it just makes his role more believable). Lots of silly childish humor with no real point other than cheap laughs.....which is refreshing!
So many movies today have to be big budget pieces of crap that want to teach you something or put out a message. I don't want to learn anything or hear any messages for that 90 minutes or 2-3 hours or whatever it is! I want to be entertained and forget about all the BS I deal with, am dealing with, will be dealing with, and so on.
That is what this movie does, it entertains you!
So many bad reviews.
OK, we rented this movie for 99 cents.
In the first few minutes we both agreed that we had already gotten more than 99 cents worth of laughs.
It's not "Theater in the round" but, we really thought it was a funny movie.
Granted, it was a bit predictable at times but:
the characters were great (4 out of 5 stars)
the plot was entertaining (3 out of 5 stars)
it was funny (3 out of 5 stars)
it was acted well (4 out of 5 stars)
So, definitely worth seeing In My Humble Opinion.
