What a little freak thing is this movie! A weird family goes through a difficult time when the mothers gets a relative amnesia. Father is a turning-a-blind-eye man; mother is unfaithful and has a creepy fetish involving bandits; sister is an annoying and arrogant teenager that seems to overrate sex, whilst her brother is virgin and religious. There isn't much to expect about this story, considering there isn't a single enjoyable character. Also, sometimes the film feels tiresome. One of the few good things about it is the way writers portray religious fanaticism, using some ironical elements to make it's portrait. Kinda original story, but bad picture anyways.

Great little dark comedy

This movie is a pleasant surprise, with a great cast and a "Twin Peaks" sense of weirdness underneath the veneer of suburbia. Hope Davis is a bored, bitchy housewife who pours her energy into fund raisers for ridiculous causes and a kinky affair with her neighbor. Her daughter is the school slut, her son is a mixed up Jesus freak misfit with an unexpected gift for target shooting and her husband, Dermot Mulroney, is in a dead end job trying to please a boss he hates. It all turns into a crazy do-over when wifey hits her head during one of her sexual escapades and wakes up with amnesia. Gang bangers, a football star literally caught with his pants down and a dope smoking priest (played to the hilt by Keith Carradine)all figure in to a madcap climax. "Family Tree" is a gem, don't miss it.

A woman gets amnesia and forgets just how bad her life had become with her family.

Very funny with lots of quirks. This is a truly dark comedy about a dysfunctional family that patches itself back together again after the mom (Hope Davis) suffers a bout of amnesia after falling in the bathroom during an affair with her neighbor. The whole family has issues, and they start to put everything behind them when they see how destructive their family has become.Dermot and Hope do a great job.

Definitely worth going to see. A wonderful ensemble cast that works very well together. Max Theriot and JP Amedori are breakout stars in the making. Most of these actors play against type, which makes it even funnier. Great music and wonderful dialog. Definitely worth seeing. We were laughing in the edit bay! Beautifully shot and directed. Watch for Christina Hendricks-she is a hoot!
