Mike's relationship with his upwardly mobile mother and her second husband is fractious at best, while Mike's father was an outstanding bad example.
As the snowstorms settle in on Mike's bleak new life, he encounters a nearby family even more dysfunctional than his own.

No surprise, then, that the recovering addict's -- who has caught Mike's eye, among other body parts-- son is a candidate for some serious counseling.
Mike-- please don't go there. Mike ... Mike ....
Yahoo has tagged the review under "love" and "sex." I'd add "death" to mix, but otherwise that sounds about right to me.
