    One of the saddest comedies I've ever seen (I don't mean that as a criticism). 5 years 3 months ago

    You could threaten to kill my entire family if I failed to write a more contrived movie than Noah Bumback's Kicking and Screaming, and I would come up short. As pretentious and fake-clever as I am, I still think even my worst effort would accidentally result in a more authentic product than K&S.

    I'm not cutting the director any slack just because it was an early effort and he was only in his 20s; plenty of his peers did better at a similar age and with comparable experience (Wes Anderson, PTA, George Lucas, Aronofsky, etc.).

    Yes, Bumback did go on to evolve as a writer/director, but given such a low starting point, that's not saying much. I hated this movie so much that I watched it all the way through to the end just to see how truly awful it could get. Spoiler: it got all-the-way awful.
