This DVD is a High Quality BACKUP of the studio release on DVD-R. This title is very rare, out of print and has NO FUTURE RELEASE DATE pending.


You'll laugh because it's not your family. You'll cry because it is.


He's good enough, he's smart enough and, doggone it, people like him! He's Stuart Smalley (Al Fraken), and he's bringing his nutty New Age act to the big screen in a heartwarming comedy that's "flat-out amazing" (F.X.Feeney, L.A. Weekly).


Stuart's "shame spiral" begins when his cable-access show, Daily Affirmation With Stuart Smalley, is abruptly cancelled. Then Stuart's favorite aunt dies, sending him home to his co-dependent mom, alcoholic dad, couch-potato brother and overeating sister.


But there's a big heart beating underneath that loud cardigan sweater, and with the help of his best friend and Al-Anon sponsor (Laura San Giacomo), Stuart takes on the armies of denial that threaten his family and future.


Get with the program and enjoy Stuart Saves His Family, the movie that puts the fun back in dysfunctional!
