An alcoholic soccer coach, a mother who swears at parent/teacher conferences, and eight-year-old who makes art films and documentaries in his basement. This is Home Movies, an animated half-hour cult0hit comedy. It also features divorce, rabies, bullies, crushes, adults who act like kids, kids who talk like adults and a metal-head teenager who plays banjo.
Home Movies spotlights third grader Brendon Small, a young filmmaker who writes, acts directs and "co-executive produces" his "groundbreaking early work" along with his friends Melissa and Jason. The show also features Coach McGuirk, a youth soccer coach who hates soccer and isn't all that crazy about youths. He's a binge drinker, a big talker and, as far as he's concerned, a perfect male role model for Brendon.
