A family must pull together, or at least spend some time together as a twister approaches and they hunker down. Harry Dean Stanton plays the soda-magnate father, Suzy Amis the layabout daughter and Lois Chiles the crazy evangelist.
This boring comedy-drama staggers along uncomically and undramatically as a rich and eccentric family sort out their problems during the aftermath of an under-seen tornado. Harry Dean Stanton is the eccentric millionaire patriarch, and the brood includes Crispin Glover in a girlie haircut and a Monkees outfit and up-and-comers Suzy Amis and Dylan McDermott. Lois Chiles pops in as a televangelist and Tim Robbins barges in for one scene suggesting this was made some time ago and has only just now crawled into any kind of release and the venerable William Burroughs guest-appears as a gun-happy farmer. There are various references to The Wizard Of Oz and You Can't Take It With You, but this is less Americana than crapola.
A collection of oddballs Kurt Vonnegut would be proud of, and an end product he most certainly would not. Tumbleweeds are more fun.
