Movie Info

Thanksgiving get-together for the eccentric Turner clan goes from bad to worse when estranged daughter Nina (Witt) makes a surprise visit home for the first time in 15 years. Nina clashes with her stepmother Deborah (Hines), and sister, Lindsay (Walger), while half-brother Jacob (Holmes) tries to keep a massive gambling debt a secret. Meanwhile, family patriarch Poppy (Bogdanovich) has his own dramatic news to share. Cold Turkey is a black comedy about how - despite our best efforts - we all eventually turn into our parents.

[Writer-Director Will] Slocombe may not carve up his kin for Cold Turkey" but he serves a wry repast.

Cold Turkey is a simmering piece of holiday dystopia with a good, scorching boil-over.

[A] tiresome cavalcade of bickering - which feels like it lasts even longer than your typical Thanksgiving dinner.

"Cold Turkey" has some fine actors who put effort into their roles, but it's getting harder and harder to care about or laugh at adult characters who have botched up their affluent lives and are still obsessed with events from childhood.

Writer-director Will Slocombe presents a familiar buffet, but there's good stuff to pick over.

Plenty of families harbor resentments, but the goings-on here become ridiculous.
