Banal, Cliched, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if Christopher Durang's summer share satire is not all that it seems. Something sinister lurks beneath for the unsuspecting.

Don't see it if Puerile humour with untalented actors. Rape and incest themes are added to the litany of crude and tasteless jokes. Embarrassingly weird.

Durang's absurdist satire of society obsessed w prurient scandal is unbelievably over the top

See it if makes important pt how public feeds on scandal, inflamed by media; public eerily represented by offstage voices/then wraith-like figures

Don't see it if heavy handed; after rape/castration/decapitation + escalating demands 4 horrific entertainment, you feel: enough already, we get the pt!
