The Oath (2018)

Politically charged Thanksgiving dinner comedy written, directed by and starring Ike Barinholtz (Bad Neighbours). Co-stars Girls Trip's Tiffany Haddish.

As the Thanksgiving deadline to sign a loyalty oath to the President approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s (Barinholtz) own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense holiday dinner completely off the rails.

Mr. Barinholtz has enough cachet to assemble an excellent cast, although he's not as canny about using it.

The film is often hard to take, offering laughs that are rarely cathartic enough to compensate.
