Daddy and them

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Welcome to the USA's heartland, home of hurricanes, tornadoes, heat waves... and Claude (Billy Bob Thornton) and Ruby Montgomery (Laura Dern). Never has a couple in these parts been as madly in love, or as often at odds. When news reaches them that Claude's uncle Hazel (Jim Varney) has been arrested they head to the family homestead in Little Rock to lend their support. As the extended family reunites it quickly becomes clear that with this bunch anything goes and everyone speaks their mind. It's a tasty mix of ambrosia salad, armed robbery, sex talk, head-on collisions and a macarena monkey - all the fixins for a love story only Billy Bob Thornton could serve up.
