Synopsis

The makers of “Boogie Nights,” a macabre look at the adult film industry during the ‘70s, now bring us a macabre look at intertwining stories of people associated with a dysfunctional family during a volatile 24-hour period. The characters consist of a dying man, who peppers every sentence with obscenity and profanity; a self-help guru who teaches men how to use and abuse women; a game show host dying of cancer, trying to reconcile with his drug addicted daughter; a brainy boy badgered by his father to win a game show tournament; an ex-brainy child, now an adult, who can’t come to terms with his parents greedily using up all his money; a guilt-ridden younger woman, spaced out on drugs, dealing with the inevitability of her husband’s dying; and so on…They are brought together by a twist of fate.

Dove Review

Content Description

Countless and oppressive amounts of profanity and obscenity used by nearly every character - men, women, boys, girls, rich, poor, intelligent, or ignorant; one blasphemous phrase; graphic sexual terms and crude sexual conversations, including many by a woman-hating guru; nudity; drug use; violence, including shootings and suicides; much arguing; several characters bordering on nervous breakdowns; regurgitation; the vileness of this movie and the amoral people who populate it grieved this reviewer.
