So Dennis and Sweet Dee like to break into strangers’ homes looking for “artifacts” (or is it things to steal?) and causing much ruckus. For fun. This is how I imagine I would’ve spent most of my days with the sister I never had — doing stupid shit at the urging of our pea-brained Gang (who you should note are not big fans of Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom).
The whole B&E thing must be a normal thing that they do because we open up on Dee and Dennis trapped in a closet arguing over yet another derailed plan. Wait, did I just say they were trapped in a closet? Yes. Yes I did. Leave it to The Gang to make fun of all the contained thrillers that have been popping up in theaters lately. Cue theme song.
While Dee and Dennis are desperate for a way out, Mac and Charlie are staked out in a van across the street. When The Gang takes on a cult movie, such as when Charlie dressed as Serpico, they don’t hold back. The whole Indiana Jones thing is incredible. Mac wears a hat. Charlie’s rocking a brown leather jacket. And even Frank gets in on it, cracking a whip whenever he damn well pleases. It’s a really funny sight to see an almost dwarf crack a whip.
So while The Gang looks for a way out, everyone’s priority gets all mixed up. As it always does. Frank goes off looking for the vase/”artifact”. Dee needs to pee. Charlie wants chips. And Mac wants to continue monopolizing the walkie-talkie. It seems like Dennis is the only one focused on getting The Gang the hell out of there. And they better get the hell out of there ‘cuz the house is inhabited by Southerners — who “can’t wait to get their hands on home-invaders and blast them with shotguns”. Irrational fear and paranoia? Yes, but funny as hell.
Shenanigans ensue. Dee finds a toilet to spray all her DNA over. Frank plays with stuffed animals. Charlie doesn’t know what a distraction is. Mac grabs a couple burgers before pulling out the ill Swedish accent. And Dennis is left to pick up the goddamn pieces. Again.
But luckily for The Gang the people of the home they broke into are just as #@$%ed up as they are. They also have zero awareness of their surroundings, which makes for a great ending. I won’t reveal the ending, but I will say that the Southerners are definitely not who you expect them to be.
