Set in a quaint fishing community on the outskirts of New York City, this is a comedy about a family whose compulsive capacity to lie creates a perfect storm of deception, half truths and confusion...... More
Dad Vince (Andy Garcia) is the worst offender: a corrections officer who won't admit that "poker night" is in fact acting class, plus he has an illegitimate son. His daughter works as a stripper when she's supposed to be in college, while young Vinnie Jr has a secret sexual fetish that involves a 24-hour webcam and the family's 140kg neighbour. Vince's fiery wife Joyce (Julianna Margulies) is the family's rock, but it's been a year since she enjoyed intimacy with her husband, and she thinks "poker night" spells "affair".
When Vince's drama teacher (Alan Arkin) encourages him to reveal his biggest secret in class, the father becomes inspired by the truth. He brings his other son (Steven Strait) into the family and sets off a chaotic chain of events that turns his mundane suburban life upside down.Hide

Didn't know quite what to expect from this film, as the actors aren't particularly well known... but it was just hilarious! I wouldn't call it predictable, even though I could kind of guess how it might turn out - the way it DOES turn out is even more funny than I could have imagined :D Light, fluffy comedy, I'd definitely recommend it!

This is one of those great little US "indie" flicks (think "Juno", "Little Miss Sunshine") about a family with deep secrets. We watch the inevitable unfolding and outing of these secrets and the consequences that follow. It's well acted with a terrific script. A thoroughly enjoyable experience .
