Skewering suburbia and the absurdity of the McMansion lifestyle

This film is like nothing I have ever seen. I truly had no idea what was going to happen from moment to moment. DeBoer and Luebbe OWN their roles. From the first scene where Jill gives away her baby to Lisa and the complexity does not stop. Suburbia has never been skewered with so much gusto. The absurdity of the film mirrors the absurdity of the McMansion lifestyle...brilliant.

Long, uneventful movie that is a long SNL flop skit. The $8.99 I spent on U-verse was down the drain and can’t get that last 2 hours of my life back. But if you’re so rich and smart you’re stupid you may have that type of humor and like it. Not one laugh out of me.
