An arrogant medical man discovers there's more to his new patient than he imagined in this drama from Polish filmmaker Feliks Falk. Dr. Konstanty Grot (Borys Szyc) is an ambitious young doctor who is determined to make a name for himself, to the point that his wife often accuses him of being more interested in his career than in her. Grot believes that he can earn the respect of his peers by successfully treating a supposedly incurable patient, and he believes he may have found a likely candidate in Pawel Plocki (Grzegorz Wolf), a mental patient who can barely function. Grot signs Plocki out of the mental hospital where he's been treated for years and moves him into his own home; in time, Plocki shows genuine improvement, and Grot thinks he?s beaten the state medical establishment at their own game. But that?s before Grot learns some secrets about his patient that cast his condition in a new and disturbing light.

Joe, the father is a charming, larger-than-life character who wants to be Super Dad to his two daughters. Stella, the mother is a holocaust survivor who spends her days trying to make Joe happy. The daughters 16 year old Maddie is at the point in her life where she is starting to think for herself and seek friendships outside of the family. Natalie the younger sister always stays optimistic and tries to see the good side of people even when they(TM)re not at their best. Everything seems normal and fine to the outside world but every family has secrets and Joe(TM)s anger and outbursts may threaten everything.

Tyson P (es) wrote: Actually funnier the second time around. One suggestion would be to watch super troopers first, laugh your ass off at that movie. then watch beer fest and you'll already have a likeness for the characters. overall pretty good.

wedstarfish 8 (ca) wrote: A Haunted House is a comedy film that stands down as a parody of the "Paranormal Activity" franchise, while making a few other minor spoofs to other things and franchises as well. Of course, this film mainly stars Marlon Waynes and a bunch of his friends. This film centers around Malcom and his girlfriend Keisha who move into a house that could be violently haunted. That's basically the whole plot.Now the plot is a very unique and clever thing to spoof, especially for the Wayne brothers. The thing that's a letdown about this film is that they really didn't try hard enough. The result of this film is a roughly directed film that was rushed to make millions of dollors, that was still at times, hilarious.One thing I liked about this film was that it was actually pretty funny, and it wasn't painful to watch (at least through the whole film). If your looking for a film that brings laughs with a few other decent elements, you got this film.The only thing I didn't like about this film was the filler. At times it was painful and it seemed like it lasted for 5 minutes when it only lasted for 1 or 2. At sometimes, it actually did last 5 minutes, not a joke. It was so unfunny and it took the fun out of watching this film.Overall, it's nothing great, and it's nothing perfect. But it's enjoyable IF you take it with a grain of salt. Doing that, you get a roughly directed comedy film that is hilarious at times and sometimes smart.

Lenny R (de) wrote: Significantly more entertaining than the reviews led me to think it would be. The film piqued my interest because I'm a fan of Stew 'n' The Berg, and knew, after seeing them together in Adventureland, that they have chemistry. That chemistry is very much evident again here, despite the dynamic between the characters being somewhat different. But they weren't the issue. I'd heard the script was weak. But I really didn't find that to be the case. You could call it derivative, I suppose, mashing up a Bourne Identity/Manchurian Candidate-type scenario with stoner comedy, but since that hasn't really been done before, it makes for an intriguing, original concept. Eisenberg's Mike is an interesting character, the two seemingly distinct and contradictory aspects of his personality turning out to actually be very much related. The action scenes are well choreographed and paced, brutal and bloody without being excessive. The movie is also very funny, and there's a very sweet love story at the centre, well conceived by Landis and well portrayed by the two leads. Beyond J-Berg and K-Wart, the supporting cast is bursting with talent - Goggins, Britton, Hale - and even Grace and Leguizamo, who I'm generally pretty ambivalent towards, are well and truly playing to their strengths here. I can't remember the last thing I saw Bill Pullman in, but it's good to see him again. I honestly don't understand the hate, or maybe just indifference, around this movie. It seems like the sort of thing that should attract a healthy cult following. I found it immensely entertaining, which, at the end of the day, is the most important thing.
