Barkley Michaelson is in a deep life rut. He's struggling to finish his PhD thesis when his father, the learned Eli Michaelson, wins the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Barkley and his mother, Sarah, a renowned forensic psychiatrist, now have the ill-fortune of living with a man-eating monster whose philandering ways have gotten less and less discrete. As if Barkley's world is not bad enough, on the eve of his father receiving the Nobel, Barkley is kidnapped and the requested ransom is the $2,000,000 in Nobel prize money. Needless to say, Eli refuses to pay it and so starts a venomous tale of familial dysfunction, lust, betrayal and ultimately revenge. In the words of Michel De Montaigne, the 16th century philosopher: "There is more barbarity in eating a man alive than in eating him dead."

This movie was really great. Randall Miller and Jody Savin did a really great job on this script and I'm so glad I saw it. The cast was great, every twist and turn made me enjoy this movie more. It's really underrated and will probably become a cult classic.


My son and I were the only two people in the theater. I can't believe it. This is the best movie out right now. We have walked out on the last two movies we went to see because there were so bad and here is this great little gem and no one knows about it. A real shame. You should go see it.


Saw it at Tribecca Film Festival. Glad it's finally hitting the theaters. Fast paced, devious characters, lots of dark humor... Alan Rickman at his best. Eliza Dushku is smoking! The music keeps the energy going as well. Loved it!


This movie was a blast to watch. It's an adventure, and you get to come along for the ride. It requires close attention, as it moves quickly and has a lot of twists and turns. It has a lot of intriguing characters (some of which could have used more development though). The entire cast is phenomenal, and each and every one of them deliver a strong performance. It makes me wonder why we don't see the likes of Bryan Greenberg, Eliza Dushku, and Sean Hatosy on the big screen more often. There is quite a bit of violence and grotesque images, but definitely still manages to be a comedy. P.S. It's not for children. There were two young girls in the theatre when I saw it today, and they were giggling every time there was a swear word or nudity. Overall, I enjoyed it immensely. I'm not predicting it will win any awards, BUT IT IS DEFINITELY WORTH SEEING. I would even like seeing it again.


was just watchin those "at the movies" dudes and they said skip it. THAT'S why i hate those guys. GO SEE THIS MOVIE !!!! i saw transporter 3, punisher and this one. this was by far the best and i enjoyed all characters and it seriously keeps you guessing as to who's up to what. definately one of the better ones out.
