10 Reasons why I Hated this Film
Maybe my problem is that I thought that this was a documentary, with real footage and real participants,
But as I watched what looked like old videos of Diane (the mom) talking on the phone, at long ago parties, running across parking lots, I wondered of course, who was really filming these mundane events....
It turns out many of the first party story tellers are actually actors.
There are so many unanswered questions. For example, at least 3 of the children were products of a marriage prior to Michael. Several of the oldest children mentioned how they felt their mom had abandoned them, and how they were abused by various caretakers and stepmothers, but little additional information is given about the previous family history.
It is clear that at least three of the children were products of a marriage prior to Michael. Was Michael the father of any children with Diane?
What happened between the time a mom who has only visitation of once a month with her children to some kind of happy cohesive living together family?
Shoot me when the oldest brother talks about how he hates to take out the garbage.
Well,didn't make to to 10, I could keep on going, but let me just say how much I HATE this film partially for it's essential dishonesty. But mostly for its essential mundanity.
