By David Botrell and Jessie Jones
Directed by Bryce Lord
When the Turpin family patriarch conks out suddenly, it ends up being a drop-dead funny problem. His widow wants his final epitaph to read "Mean and Surly" while the rest of the clan deals with their loss in frantically silly ways. His eccentric family tries hard to get him to his resting place, but putting him in the ground ends up being a real challenged for this colorful group of Southern misfits.
