The 25 most insufferable movie families

Yardbarker Logo By Jeremy Smith of Yardbarker | Slide 2 of 26: This quirk-infested comedy is built around the multifaceted travails of the Hoover family, a barely functioning unit that includes a despondent brother-in-law (Steve Carell) and a profane, heroin-snorting grandfather (Alan Arkin). When they hit the road in their VW Microbus to take their youngest (Abigail Breslin) to a beauty pageant, each individual experiences a major tragedy and a small triumph (save for grandpa; he dies). It’s an indie-film “Vacation” that believes its characters are loveable weirdoes, when they’re actually little more than cynically constructed one-trick caricatures.
