This is not a belly laugh comedy, but a
humorous subtle drama. It's packed with bizarre funny situations
and quirky funny lines.
It's mainly about the value of family,
even if they are insane.
Frustrating for some, but a lot of fun
for others like myself. I like movies that go just over the edge
and explore new fresh frontiers.
Director Wes Anderson paints a family portrait
of one of the most dysfunctional families this side of the Simpsons.
Royal is out of money, so it's about time
his family knows what he really thinks about them, despite the
fact that they all already hate him.
Subtle performances drawn from top actors
make this one of the most unique movies to come around in years.
Quirky, odd and just plain fun.
The movie is a twisted, distorted, warped
comedy about a bunch of odd, strange and cranky losers.
Star Gene Hackman does a great job with
his cheerfully thoughtless routines, and the rest of the cast
support his performance with a wasted and miserable look.
The story is about the misadventures of
a uniquely unhappy family. It's crazy, adult entertainment.
