Demented comedy about a dysfunctional family battling to gain affection of their aging rich relative, played by Kirk Douglas, for his large estate. When Kirk Douglas reveals to the entire family that he's really in debt, most of them abruptly take off. It may be worth watching if you're particular fans of Michael J. Fox or Phil Hartman. Otherwise, you'll find that the script needs vast improvement.
