Director Betty Thomas (better known as Lucy Bates from Hill Street Blues ) directs this comedy about one of America’s favourite TV families of the 70s. Except it’s the 90s and, while the world has moved on, they haven’t, with parents Mike and Carol (Gary Cole and Shelly Long) and their brood now irritating anachronisms rather than the loved, slightly goofy family.
But there’s hope for their neighbours – they’ve forgotten to pay their property taxes and next-door neighbour Mr Diymeyer (Michael McKean) can buy their home, orange formica kitchen fittings and all, and raze it to the ground as part of his property development schemes. Can the family raise $20,000 in just one week? Watch out for cameo appearances from some of the original cast.
