“Waaaaaitaminute” you might say. And yeah, okay, technically this is cheating. But **** it – we’re talking about dysfunctional families in film, Delirious is a concert film, and the Murphys (as depicted in the “Family Cookout” bit on this alb…in this movie) is about as close to completely relatable as any of us are going to get to any of these families. From Uncle Gus’ techniques for grill lighting (“NOW THASSA FIRE!”) to Aunt Bunny’s mustachioed clumsiness (“…MY SHOE…”) to Eddie’s Father’s drunken assault on the entire family (“I know you’re 7, but you’ll be a 7-year-old, no-house, walkin’-the-dog mother****er”). There’s every chance that you’ve experienced SOMEthing today that makes this feel like home.
Most Dysfunctional Moment: “But I’ma tell you somethin’ mother****er. You can take your mother****in’ hairy fatass wife mustache bitch out the ****. You can go upstairs and get the mother****in’ dog and scoop up the ****, and take Eddie, and get these mother****in’ long Angela Davis afro-wearin’ mother****in’ kids of yours and put them in the mother****in’ goonie-goo-goo-mobile and get the **** out. And if my wife don’t like it she can get the **** out too.”
