Oh, boy, what fun, spending two hours watching a deranged kid and his miserable family. The kid doesn't get along with his dad, James Farentino, or his little brother. So the kid goes crackers. He murders a bunny rabbit. He runs away, and you can't much blame him. Then he helps kill his brother—which is going a little far, even if the brother is a brat. Next we get to listen to the rest of the family tell a shrink how they feel about all this. And finally the kid tries to kill himself. But we have an easier escape from the senseless, sad world of Family Sins. We can change the channel.
