Watch The Perfect Family
- 1 hr 24 min
"The Perfect Family" stars Kathleen Turner as Eileen Cleary as a devout Catholic homemaker and relentless church volunteer. When monsignor Murphy, played by Richard Chamberlain, is impressed by Eileen's volunteer work enough to nominate her for "Catholic Woman of the Year," Eileen is thrilled. Until she learns that all nominees must invite the Archbishop to their homes for a dinner. Eileen's husband Frank, played by Michael McGrady, suffers from alcoholism. Their son Frank Jr. (Jason Ritter) is in the middle of both an ugly divorce and a torrid affair with a decidedly not Catholic woman. The Cleary's daughter Shannon, played by Emily Deschanel, is a lesbian who is pregnant and on the verge of marrying her romantic partner Angela (Angelique Cabral). Eileen has to dodge the unwitting sabotage attempts of her family in order to gain the honor, which comes with complete absolution of all her past sins. Unfortunately, Eileen's arch rival, Agnes Dunn (Sharon Lawrence), is also being considered for "Catholic Woman of the Year." This light-hearted comedy is the first feature film from director Anne Renton.
