When Marty Pascal  (Josh Hamilton) decides to take his fiancé Lesly (Tori Spelling) to his mother's house for Thanksgiving and drop his engagement bomb on his family, he knows that Lesly maybe his only ticket to a 'normal' life. His mother, brother Anthony (Freddie Prinze Jr.) are taking care of his twin sister, Jackie-O (Parker Posey), who has just been released from a psychiatric hospital. Jackie has a long-standing obsession with Jacqueline Kennedy and president Kennedy's assassination, but she seems even more obsessed with her twin brother Marty, whom she has incestuously seduced during re-enactments of the Kennedy assassination when they were as young as 14. Meanwhile, Anthony an over-eager and frustrated virgin, is trying to seduce Lesly away from Marty, while mama Mrs. Pascal (Geneviève Bujold) is trying her best to drive Lesly away, to keep her family just the way it is...

Based on Wendy MacLeod's play carrying the same name, the film is filled with witty, rapid-fire dialogue in a kitschy, black-comedy mold that will have you both shocked and in stitches.
