I think the reviewer misses the boat somewhat. Brian and Jake don't really rebel against Sam because Sam is hard on them. It's because of the fact that Sam is full of crap. Sam presents himself as a hotshot that gets things done, but it's easy to tell that Sam hasn't done much of note in his life. He is trying to peddle drugs to make his restaurant dreams come true. But you never get the feeling that this will lead to anywhere considering the growing drug problem Sam (and now their mother) has. Sure, Sam tries to come off as the manly everyday man type of guy, but we also get Jake's rant against the blowhard intellectual teacher. The movie does some to send some mixed messages at times. Overall, I agree that it does go over the top, but I like the performances here. I've watched this movie at least 5 or 6 times. It's not a masterpiece, but I don't it deserves to be forgotten about and discarded the way that it has been.
