A slacker tries to do the right thing for his family with unexpectedly chaotic results in this independent comedy. Salman (Scott Prendergast) is an out-of-work twentysomething who has few skills and fewer prospects. However, things are significantly worse for his older brother -- his National Guard unit has been called back to Iraq, and his wife, Leslie (Lisa Kudrow), needs to go back to work in order to support their children. However, Leslie doesn't have anyone to look after her two sons, so when Salman learns of her sad situation, he volunteers to move in and help mind the kids. Salman quickly discovers the boys are nearly psychotic and will stop at nothing to get him out of the house, including putting sharp objects in his breakfast. With the household still short on money, Leslie helps Salman get a job, and soon he's become the corporate mascot for a failing Internet company, who pounds the pavement wearing a strange blue costume hoping to drum up interest in renting space in the corporate offices. The first feature film as writer and director for actor Scott Prendergast, Kabluey also stars Christine Taylor, Conchata Ferrell, Teri Garr, and Chris Parnell. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

21st Century Tati/Kafka by JPielaszczyk September 23, 2008 - 8:30 AM PDT

Dead-on satire of life in post-apocalypse America . . . you know, the one where Dad's in Iraq and Mom's working at the skeletal remains of an exploded while the kids are destroying the house and their feckless uncle has his stuff in storage in two other corners of the country and arrives to help out. Compassionate and briskly paced with good sight-gags. Our hero's worthlessness in the marketplace is trumped by his emerging rapport with kids. "Masks don't conceal . . . they reveal."--Elizabeth Bishop.
