“I can’t even have a head-on collision in peace”

After “Sling Blade”:http://imdb.com/title/tt0117666/, Billy Bob Thornton wrote, directed, and starred in a second movie, “Daddy and Them”:http://imdb.com/title/tt0166158/.

The cast is improbable–Billy Bob, Laura Dern, Brenda Blethyn, Ben Affleck, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jim Varney, Andy _Fucking_ Griffith–and the family they portray is both grotesque and hilarious.

I’m amazed that I can’t find any information about why this movie, filmed in ’98 or ’99, was released direct to cable in 2001 and then didn’t make it to DVD until late last year.
