Director : Mark Waters
With : Parker Posey, Josh Hamilton, Tori Spelling, Geneviêve Bujold
This movie had to be good– after al, it features a 1) killer cast: Parker Posey (everything indie), Josh Hamilton (With Honors, Suburbia), Tori Spelling (need I say more), Genevieve Bujold (Coma, Dead Ringers) and Freddie Prinze Jr. (I Know What You Did Last Summer) and 2) a great story.
On a rainy Thanksgiving night, Josh Hamilton and his provincial fiancee, Tori Spelling, roll up to Hamilton’s huge mansion to spend the holiday weekend. Having managed to avoid his family for years, Hamilton is greeted by each crazy family member in an oddly affectionate manner. His mother seems unnaturally cold and distant, his brother painfully overzealous (like a puppy who has been left alone for days), and his twin sister, who calls herself Jackie O and played is brilliantly by Parker Posey, who treats him like a jealous ex-girlfriend.
