First time hearing about this flick... on the surface, just looking at its cast, I'd definitely sit up and pay attention; but, looking at the trailer below, don't know what to make of it.
Chi McBride, Evan Ross and Shad "Bow Wow" Moss co-star (as an aside, based on the trailer below, it seems like Bow Wow has begun to make the transition from "Bow Wow" to "Shad Moss;" he's in that in-between stage where you combine your real and "stage" name. Soon he'll drop the "Bow Wow" altogether, and we'll know his as Shad Moss :)
The rest of the cast includes Dermot Mulroney, Hope Davis, Selma Blair, Keith Carradine, Gabrielle Anwar, Evan Ross, Christina Hendricks, Jane Seymour, and Rachel Leigh Cook.
Like I said, decent cast there overall.
Life in suburban Serenity, Ohio is never quite as serene as it appears. The dysfunctional Burnett family – Bunnie (Hope Davis), Jack (Dermot Mulroney) and their twin 17 year olds Eric (Max Thieriot) and Kelly (Britt Robertson) – seems like a lost cause. When a freak accident leaves Bunnie with a case of amnesia, the Burnetts get an unexpected second chance at happiness. Meanwhile, next door neighbor Simon (Chi McBride) is relieved that his tryst gone wrong with Bunnie remains undetected, at least for the moment. Before long, a slew of past relationships, kids with guns, a suicidal teacher, a very zealous religious club, misinterpreted advances, corporate down-sizing, and one fateful squirrel combine to create enough mayhem to test the resolve, sanity and future of any family!
The film will be released in theaters August 26, 2011.
