    A daft pitch-black dark comedy about family dysfunction that plays out over painfully ugly family Christmas celebration.

    Characters this nicely etched deserve a more complete conclusion.

    Mostly the movie just gets off on how awful and/or pathetic its characters are, calling on the viewer to judge or pity rather than sympathize with its gallery of grotesques.

    The more difficult characters here (all female) and resulting character dynamics are so consistently shrill that the picture feels a bit too one-dimensional and cruel to leave the small-tragedy aftertaste it could have.
