Audience: Adults REVIEWER: Dr. Tom
Snyder DYSFUNKTIONAL FAMILY is
a comedy concert movie
starring black comic Eddie
Griffin. It's a raw, lewd
movie featuring Eddie's
profane comedy act, spiced up
with visits with Eddie's
mother, whose punishments for
bad behavior are legendary,
his Uncle Bucky, a heroin
addict who spent more time in
the Big House than in Eddie's
house, and his Uncle Curtis,
who introduced Eddie to
movies, including classic
westerns and classic
pornography. Interlaced among
the profanity and explicit sex
jokes is the story of a boy
who, were it not for some
adult inspiration in the most
unlikely of places, might be
pushing drugs today instead of
jokes. Eddie Griffin can be a
funny guy, but decent-minded
audiences will not be amused
by his crude antics in this
offensive concert movie.
DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY not only
contains a constant stream of
obscenities, profanities and
ethnic slurs, it even has
footage from Eddie Griffin's
uncle's porn collection and
graphic sexual descriptions
from Eddie while he's
performing on stage. Griffin
is also an equal opportunity
offender, which means his
stage act includes some
borderline jokes about
Christian preachers and
Christian churchgoers.
Needless to say, this movie is
pretty distasteful and
abhorrent. Please address your
