And you can't really blame anyone other than the kids themselves since it's their names on the screenplay. Sure the direction was a little over-the-top and the production looked more like a TV show than an actual movie, but in the end, none of that would really have mattered if the script had been funny, but alas, no laughs came.
Actually, I won't lie. There was ONE very funny scene featuring an ungrateful son coming home from X-Mas and walking around the living room for about 30 seconds and then leaving, but other than the odd funny one-liner, the rest of the movie tanked.
If anybody knows what happened with this film, I would love some insight. There ain't much more I can say about this film. It was supposed to be a comedy, but it just wasn't funny. End of story. I did enjoy the "kids" playing dress-up as usual though.
Stars Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson
