The Movie Checklist - Should You Watch This?

Did you ever wonder if you could trust those rating sites on their reviews of movies? I mean all those strangers can’t know if you’re gonna like a movie! Leave it to just one stranger... me. I’m gonna tell you whether or not you should watch movies (there will be spoilers). Let’s go.

Movie name: Head of the Family

Year: 1996 


Genre: Horror Comedy

Main character(s): Howard, Loretta, Lance, Ernestina, Eagle Eyes, Strong One, and Myron. I've made a helpful graphic you can view below.

Notable cast members: None that I know of.

One line-ish plot summary: A small town guy enlists a family of 4 odd and reclusive siblings  to help get rid of the husband of his mistress, hijinks ensue.

Best character: Loretta, the mistress, is definitely the best character. She’s sarcastic, clever, and funny.

Worst character: Howard, Loretta’s husband. He’s a jerk.

Best moment: When Lance pushes Myron (the eponymous head of the family) down the stairs. Totes hilar. 

Worst moment: When Myron licks Loretta’s boob with his giant slimy tongue. Totes vom.

Plot twists?: The reveal of big head Myron, and the reveal that Myron’s 3 siblings collect victims for Myron to experiment on.

How was the ending?: Great! Loretta has the spirit of a true hustla and in the end gets the big dumb brother to marry her so she can control the Stackpool family wealth.  

Sequels/prequels?: According to Wikipedia, there was a proposed sequel called Bride of the Head of the Family, but sadly it didn’t get made.

Does Kayla like this movie?: YES

Should you watch this movie?: YES

Why you should watch this movie: It’s hilarious and dumb. If you love bad, dumb movies, you will love this.

Where you can watch this movie (as of this posting): Hulu

Extra advice: Don’t watch with parents or children, there's hella boobies.
