Sex and JFK's assassination are intertwined in this puerile, pseudodark story (1997) about a wacky family—an adaptation of Wendy MacLeod's play that uses the medium of cinema mainly to exploit archival footage. In the opening sequence images of the former president's wife giving a tour of the White House are intercut with Super-8-style footage of a little girl who will grow up to insist on being called Jackie O (Parker Posey), dressed to the nines and giving a tour of her own house—part of a scenario that you won't be surprised to learn is foreplay in her compulsive sexual relationship with . . . well, it's supposed to be shocking. Genevieve Bujold plays the sinister mother of Posey, Freddy Prinze Jr., and Josh Hamilton—who has the nerve to bring Tori Spelling home for Thanksgiving. Written and directed by Mark Waters. 90 min.
