I saw The Oranges at the theatre yesterday.
If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a comedy starring Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt, Alison Janney, Catherine Keener, Adam Brody, and Leighton Meester.
So there are a few good reasons to see it.
But some people argue that the subject matter of this comedy might be a reason not to.
In this farce — and believe me, it is really funny — the close friendship of two families is challenged when the dad from family #1 has an affair with the college-aged daughter of family #2.
Is this too taboo to even laugh about? I say yes..but then I’ve seen it. Other folks I know think it’s too icky to even go see. But we see movies about murder and war and terrorism all the time. Does exploring internal family strife — in the name of comedy — really cross the line? At least give it a look before you decide.
Then judge, judge, judge.
