File_000.jpg

DATE REVIEWED: 01/23/2017

TITLE: Son In Law

FORMAT: Laserdisc

TIME RIDDEN / FILM LENGTH: 1 hour 36 minutes

DISTANCE RIDDEN WHILE VIEWING: 20.7 miles

TOTAL CINEMA MILES LOGGED: 6109 miles

SYNOPSIS: A 1990 Southern California hipster upsets the dysfunctional lives of a North Dakota ranch family.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: Change is good and usually for the better.  Parents are often times grown up children.
Zack, the baby brother of the family steals this film.

PROS AND CONS:  Not a bad film, but light-hearted fare at it’s best.  Shore is not a bad actor in his nitch.  He has the range to be dramatic, but seldom is.  

The farm family that “Crawl” (Shore’s character) invades is noteworthy only because of the well known character actors that portray it.  They are old hands to Shore’s up and coming performance.

The most enjoyable part of the film was the performance of Patrick Renna, as the young son of the family.  He has the best lines and delivers them well.
