Dysfunctional families are nothing new on a movie screen on on the block many of us live on.

There have been some memorable classics on the subject matter throughout the 100 years or so movie-lovers have been transfixed by what lights up the screen in front of them. 
 
In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips lasting a little over an hour, we'll investigate why the father and son played to perfection by Melvyn Douglas and Paul Newman grew to hate each other's guts in "Hud."
 
And there's more.  We'll laugh about cinematic family dysfunction in the "Meet the Parents" franchise and find some heartfelt emotional moments amid the mayhem in "Little Miss Sunshine."
