The kids actually are all right; their parents are another story. Mom And Dad has the nuclear unit going atomic, but it’s less radioactive than mildly hazardous.
In this new horror-comedy from Crank writer/director Brian Taylor, a suburban slew of parents devolve into an unexplained fit of rage against their children. The violent id underneath affection, the part of every parent that despises their offspring, is unleashed for maximum destruction with the full brunt of any similar kind of stifled emotions behind white picket fences. Unfortunately, the film explores these themes gracelessly and without without the specificity to elevate the humor.
