Weird casting, not nearly as good as the book (which is incredible).

Despite a host of good performances (Walken’s railing egotist steals every scene) and some colourful flashbacks, Bateman’s comedy/drama about a dysfunctional family living under the microscope—or camera lens—doesn’t have any new logs to throw onto the fire. Dad staunchly defends his past decisions, mom is browbeaten, the adult kids waver between angry recriminations and self-destructive depression, and it all ends with the usual epiphanies and weeping wounds. As a critique on the purpose of art however Fang does set forth a few tepid questions as to where the boundaries lay, but one fiery monologue from Caleb on the responsibility of the artist notwithstanding it all pretty much fizzles into so much pretentious gabble. Definitely not the best work of anyone involved, these fangs elicit little more than a superficial scratch.

This has to be the worst movie in 2016. I felt like I wasted several hours I cannot get back. Boring and improbable story = stupid movie

It would seem like Director Jason Bateman loves deeply flawed characters with parental issues in outrageous situations. It all works. If you like this one then check out Bad Words, or vice versa.
