(finished 4th in its dev group)

Nick (Stahl) is going insane. Chunky!, the play he's producing for his junior high school, opens in three weeks. Worse, he suspects his bible-thumping mother (Bates) is using her Mary Kay job as a front to sell crack to bored housewives. His unemployed father (Goodman) is getting absurdly heavy and inviting Internet chat buddies over for dinner. A draconian sister and insane neighbors add to his dementia. Nick must turn to a polka-obsessed aunt and Elvis-impersonating grandmother to help save his family and the play.

Director: Joel Coen
