The animated sitcom Home Movies follows the everyday lives of a group of three grade school children, the tribulations of their lives as well as their constant almost compulsive film making which spans countless genres. Starring the voice talent of Brendon Small, Jon Benjamin, Melissa Bardin Galsky, Janine Ditullio and Paula Poundstone this series is hilarious and poignant for older audiences and the young at heart. Brendon Small, an eight year old budding filmmaker lives with his divorced mother Paula and his adopted sister, the infant Josie. Almost always accompanied by his friends who act in their amateur yet sophisticated films, Melissa and Jason, they are all three misfits who have found solace with each other and with their alcoholic and abrasive after school soccer coach McGuirk. Despite their misadventures and mishaps of the children and their parents, this strange near family unit makes it through valuable life lessons and hilarious situations. Filmed using 'retroscripting,' the use of vague scripts and improv dialog, the series features natural conversations, excellent music and fantastic movie parodies through Brendon's films this series somehow manages to be both complex and sentimental as well as smooth and beautifully imperfect.
