Better Housekeeping (2002)
Critic Reviews for Better Housekeeping
Plays like one long, meandering sketch inspired by the works of John Waters and Todd Solondz, rather than a fully developed story.
As broad and cartoonish as the screenplay is, there is an accuracy of observation in the work of the director, Frank Novak, that keeps the film grounded in an undeniable social realism.
Too stupid to be satire, too obviously hateful to be classified otherwise, Frank Novak's irritating slice of lumpen life is as reliably soul-killing as its title is nearly meaningless.
The movie is ... very funny as you peek at it through the fingers in front of your eyes.
In spite of Good Housekeeping's unsavory characters and WWF mentality, this white trash War of the Roses is a surprisingly engaging film.
Novak manages to capture a cruelly hilarious vein of black comedy in the situation with his cast of non-actors and a gritty, no-budget approach.
