Another film showing the useless and empty lives of American white trash that is exemplified in this dull movie. The manipulative antics of the daughter lead one to wonder why the director did not have her shot at the end of the movie it would have made a better ending. Selfishness and irresponsibility add to the mix declaring that most Americans are just not worth having around. Nibbles: Tomatoes.
I really did not enjoy this film which is a shame considering the amount of acting talent taking part. The performances themselves were good but the story really bored me and I was surprised I watched it until the end.
This was a bit depressing, Anna Sophia Robb was perfect for the role of Tara. Poor James, the ending makes me wonder if he was going to ever see Joleen & Tara again. I felt like smacking Dennis Hopper over the head myself with all the nasty, unprovoked things he was saying. Great cast !!
