Love and revenge are two opposing sentiments, director Dean Parisot manages to portray this in his romantic comedy �Home Fries�. These feelings put star Luke Wilson in a difficult situation; having to choose between his beloved, and between his mother and brother.

Burger-joint waitress Sally Jackson [Drew Barrymore] is pregnant after her affair with a married man called Henry Lever [Chris Ellis].

When Henry�s wife Beatrice [Catherine O'Hara] finds out about Henry's infidelity, she sends her sons from a previous marriage, military pilots Angus [Jake Busey] and Dorian Montier [Luke Wilson], to scare him. Their fear tactics work so well that without laying a finger on him, Henry has a heart attack and dies on the spot.

The brothers worry about who could have witnessed what happened with Henry and discover only Sally could. They still know nothing about her affair with their now-dead step-dad Henry.

Dorian takes up work at the burger-joint to make sure Sally knows nothing, but soon enough falls head over heels for her himself. Yet Dorian has to find a way to balance these feelings he seems to have for Sally against his love for his mother and brother, while his crazed brother Angus keeps talking about avenging his mother's honor and finding Henry's lover.

Written by Vince Gilligan, "Home Fries" was released in 1998. It runs for 91 minutes, and was rated PG-13 for thematic elements and some sexual humor.
