Despite a terrific cast this is a step down for filmmaker Todd Solondz’ usual dyspeptic wit.
“Hilarious!” says one blurb on the back of the DVD. Funny. I wasn’t laughing. I mean, I can handle pitch-black humor as well as anyone but there’s gotta be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Oh well, at least it’s a Todd Solondz movie you can take yer mom to (if yer ma is a so-called “zoomer”, chances are she is fairly liberal.)
