The Kumar family consists of Ramprasad, his wife, Durga; their married son, Vijay, his wife, Sharda, their daughter, Pinky; a married daughter who lives with them, Kanchan, her husband, Bajrangi, and a son; an unmarried and unemployed son, Amar. Save for Bajrangi and Amar everyone else likes to bully and abuse Sharda and make her do all the house-work, especially Kanchan and Durga who don't even need an excuse to beat, slap her, and even burn her arm in scalding hot water. Amar finds a job with Dwarkaprasad, and falls in love with his daughter, Seema. One day Amar has to be go to Delhi, and four days later when he returns home he finds that Sharda and Pinky are missing, and Sharda's mom, Devki, is dead. He frantically searches for them and comes across their dead bodies. The question remains how did Devki die, and how were Sharda and Pinky killed?

Shelley Long is so great here. She's essentially playing a rich snob character, but she's so adorable, it is just impossible not to love her character. This is the kind of role I could see in modern times for Taylor Swift to do if she ever wanted. Serious!A lot of the fan is the Girl Scout members, as some have been in other stuff I enjoyed as a child. Of course Carla Gugino is the stand out, as she continues to be a huge actress in her career. Ami Foster from Punky Brewster, Kellie Martin from Life Goes On, Heather Hopper from Miss Bliss(the prequel to Saved By The Bell) andEmily Schulman from Small Wonder.Tori Spelling also shows up as a rival Scout. A ton of celebrity cameos are sprinkled throughout as well.It's corny, but the good corny that makes the nearly two hour long movie fly by and it's just good fun. You don't have to be rich to appreciate how these girls evolve either.Not sure why it was ravaged by critics.

That isn't to say it doesn't contain some inventive sequences, particularly the climactic battle at the end, but too often it plays like a 1950s drama splashed on the widescreen but with little edge to the proceedings. Or perhaps I was just disappointed relative to my expectations- there is eccentricity here but not enough! Hideki Takahashi plays Tetsu, a yakuza everyman on the run after he and his brother Kenji (Kotobuki Hananomoto) kill a rival gangster. Tetsu has been raising (and sheltering) sensitive Kenji since their parents died but Kenji has ideas of his own once they settle down as small town construction workers (coveting the boss's wife and causing problems as a result). In the end, Tetsu reveals his yakuza past (previously hidden) and stands up against another rival gang threatening to take over the construction business (after Kenji meets foul play). And thus we get the climactic battle, shown from all angles. Start elsewhere with Suzuki (or perhaps start here and be pleasantly surprised by the other films).

Richard S (es) wrote: I was a third of the way into this before I was sure I had seen it before, which says a lot. Vernon is even more sleazily unpleasant than he's meant to be, which I thought was gross, but might be a kind of brilliance. I thought Griffin was quite good, though. The whole thing is crazily uneven and littered with nods to Suspiria, which just made me wish I was watching a better movie.

Paul N (kr) wrote: Just saw this last night. Have really liked what Brand is saying but have never been able to sit through a whole episode of the Trews. This documentary puts it all in perspective and tells an amazing story of self-redemption without pulling any punches about this complicated and fascinating personality. A well-told story that also packs a philosophical punch and challenge to us all to take on this Oligarchy in which we are currently trapped. Highly recommended.
