The story of the Dunderhead family and their travails in times of trouble is a remarkable movie starring Olympia Dukakis, Alison Brie and Haley Joel Osment. Olympia Dukakis plays the grandmother Ira, someone who has trouble taking care of her often rowdy grandkids, Ella and Womple. They have been living for long in Montana, and one fine day are forced to evacuate and head to somewhere safer, after a murder occurs in their town.
The Dunderheads have remained isolated from everyone for a long time, and find it difficult to respond to the rules. When the murder happens, Ira takes both Ella and Womple on a one-way trip to Canada. But the rowdy pair has different ideas when they trick Ira to take a wrong turn. All three actors literally rip the seats of their car in this over-the-top comedy. Olympia’s portrayal of a mute lady who uses loud noises and even her hands to convey herself, and Alison’s role of a wild child, are extremely eye-catching.
