One of my favorite movies is on. Doing Time on Maple Drive, starring Jim Carrey and James Sikking, is a BSP classic. This movie puts the “fun” in dysfunctional. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s another post in this blog on that movie. In a family of five, the oldest son is a drunk, the perfect son turns out to be gay, and the daughter is having an abortion because “Dad” says the timing isn’t right for them to have a child. Dad is an absent father and Mom is in total denial. In a movie-like three minute time period, all their secrets are revealed to each other.
Good stuff. Jim Carrey displays some of his acting skill in this one; he’s not a comedian for sure.
