The Estate (2022)

Dean Craig directs Toni Collette, Anna Faris and Kathleen Turner in this farce comedy about two sisters who try to get back in the good graces of their estranged aunt before she passes to inherit some of her fortune.

Solid premise, absolutely stacked cast, foul mouthed dialogue. Why doesn’t this work? It is just listless and feels like someone tried to write a Kevin Smith script with none of the heart or personality. Tone deaf, dated. An utter waste of the ensemble in front of the camera.
