We gave it a B

In this endearing, surprisingly respectful comedy, dim dad Darryl Kerrigan and his blissful clan battle the corporate bigwigs who want to evict them from their beloved tract house. The superb Caton conveys Darryl’s devotion to his family with such heartfelt sweetness that you can’t help loving him—even as you laugh at him. Reel Goodies (0:55) Darryl’s lawyer delivers his summation: ”It’s the Constitution…it’s justice, it’s law, it’s the vibe…. I rest my case.” The Last Detail Director Rob Sitch, the writers, and some of the actors come from Aussie comedy troupe the D-Generation, stars of the TV news satire Frontline. B
