Age Rating:

Mayhem as a dysfunctional family move to the suburbs and invite their neighbours to a barbecue to get to know them, while their kids plan to expose the cannabis growing vegans next door.

Crazy characters with funny flaws- Will keep you laughing!
Eren and Jenny, with their teen daughter, Flower move to 'Hilltop - the safest place to be.' Eren works for a company, designing technical gadgets, and invents a mobile phone with extras, including infra red, night vision camera, and heat sensors. The neighbours seem nice...a cop and his twin son and daughter, a couple of harmless hippies, and a couple with a son that loves gadgets. Eren lets him try out his prototype phone on trial, which is exactly what the gang needs to expose the villanous vegans.
Flower, the twins and Travis the gadget boy, are suspicious that Hilltop is not so law abiding as dad cop thinks. Eren and Jenny plan a summer barbecue to get to know their neighbours better, but the kids have other plans. They use the time to break into the hippie house using the camera phone to discover their secret plants growing.
Meanwhile the meat fest party goes with a bang, with an unsuspecting work colleague who has a punk rock tribute band, playing not quite the music Eren thought, to an audience of vegan hippies, jehovah's witness walk ins, and goes with a bang with a science project experiment from one of the twins. Who knows how the night will end. SET IN ONE LOCATION IN THE SUBURBS, TO MAKE A FUN BUDGET COMEDY MOVIE!
