Black comedy doesn't get much clumsier than Jay Floyd's Forgiving the Franklins.
If ever there was a man destined to (eventually) take the reins of shock suburban cinema from the aforementioned Waters, Jay Floyd is it.
This dark comedy seems to be poking fun at the religious fundamentalists, but there's also an underlying message about living your life without shame, being who you are, and even about faith.
Floyd does provide some huge laughs along the way but loses all potential for poignancy by never getting past what eventually becomes a one-joke premise.
Amateurish, horribly acted, and awkwardly edited "comedy" about a conservative Christian family who is transformed into a liberated, liberal family by a car crash, drawing the ire of their uptight, conservative friends. The religious right is a group ripe with material to satirize, but this sub-TV movie quality disaster is NOT the way to do it. An insipid, ridiculous bore.
