Now, no longer able to ignore the fact that every decision he makes will affect young Isaac (played by Webber's real-life son Isaac Love), he must navigate the rocky road of parenthood without any support.

The Perfect Family

Now Playing Synopsis: A woman tries to pass her unconventional family off as a wholesome churchgoing household in this comedy. Eileen Cleary (Kathleen Turner) is a devout Catholic housewife who is a tireless volunteer at her church, ready to help with a fund-raising effort or deliver meals to shut-ins at a moment's notice. Eileen's pastor, Monsignor Murphy (Richard Chamberlain), is impressed enough to nominate her for the honor of "Catholic Woman of the Year," and when she learns that full absolution of all her past sins is one of the perks that comes with the honor, she's determined to win. However, Eileen also finds out that there's a hitch -- the nominees are expected to invite the Archbishop to their home for dinner, and her household hardly seems like the picture of moral well-being. Her husband Frank (Michael McGrady) struggles with a drinking problem, her son Frank Jr. (Jason Ritter) is in the midst of a divorce and is involved with a woman who is not Catholic, and her daughter Shannon (Emily Deschanel) is a lesbian who is about to marry her partner Angela (Angelique Cabral) and is already carrying their child. Does Eileen stand a chance against her longtime rival Agnes Dunn (Sharon Lawrence), who is also in the running for the title? The Perfect Family was the first feature film from director Anne Renton. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Kathleen Turner, Emily Deschanel, Jason Ritter, Michael McGrady, Shannon Cochran, Sharon Lawrence, Angelique Cabral, Richard Chamberlain Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

A Bag of Hammers

Now Playing Synopsis: A kid in need of adult guidance gets taken under the wings of two guys who stubbornly refuse to mature in this independent comedy. Alan (Jake Sandvig) and Ben (Jason Ritter) are two friends in their mid-twenties who've known each other since high school and still behave as if they're stuck in adolescence. They make a living by pretending to offer valet parking at funerals, stealing the cars and selling them to a fence (Todd Louiso) who runs a garage. While Alan's sister Mel (Rebecca Hall) encourages the two to find a more responsible occupation, they don't do much about it until Lynette (Carrie Preston) moves into the neighborhood. Lynette is a single mother whose livelihood seems no more stable than Alan and Ben's, and when she mysteriously disappears, it falls to them to look after her 12-year-old son Kelsey (Chandler Canterbury). While initially Alan and Ben seem more like destructive playmates than guardians and try to bring Kelsey into their car-theft scheme, in time it occurs to them to start acting a bit more like fit role models for their young companion. A Bag of Hammers was the first feature film from writer and director Brian Crano. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Jason Ritter, Jake Sandvig, Chandler Canterbury, Rebecca Hall, Todd Louiso Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
