DailyView: Day 319, Movie 456
I guess I had no idea what this was going to be, because this wild and DARK comedy caught me completely off-guard.
A young girl named Carly (Anne Winters) and her little brother Josh (Zackary Arthur) have to survive a period when a mass hysteria swept the nation, that caused parents to turn on their children.
Carly’s parents were Brent (Nicolas Cage) and Kendall (Selma Blair) who had already started to regret the lives that they were living and this mysterious illness made them easy victims.
I don’t want to go into much detail here in case someone out there wants to see this because if you can approach this like I did, with absolutely no idea what was going to happen, you’ll have the same wild and shockingly fun time that I did.
What I will tell you: this movie is funny. Maybe you’ll feel bad about laughing, but laugh you will.
Second, it features one of those Nic Cage magnetically unhinged performances that he has become infamous for.
Other than that, I don’t want to spoil this crazy ride. I constantly had my eyes bulging and my mouth open in shock. Mom and Dad is a psychotic compilation.
