PLOT DESCRIPTION:
The Applegates
is the video title for the darkly satirical comedy
Meet the Applegates
. The titular family, to all intents and purposes human
beings, are actually a clan of giant Brazilian Cocorada bugs.
Paterfamilias Dick Applegate (
Ed Begley Jr
.) takes a job with an Ohio nuclear power plant, with the
intention of triggering an explosion, thereby exterminating all
mankind and allowing the bugs to live in safety. Alas, every one of
the Applegates falls victim to assimilation: Dick becomes a typical
suburban philanderer, his wife Jane (
Stockard Channing
) succumbs to the seductions of the Credit Card, and the
Applegate kids transform into obnoxious mall-cruising teens. By the
time the Applegates' Aunt Bea (
Dabney Coleman
) links up with them to supervise the nuclear explosion, the
family considers Auntie a nuisance and plots a fitting demise for
her (him?). Director
Michael Lehmann
had previously skewered upper middle class values in
Heathers
, which was a relatively realistic story with vestiges of the
bizarre; in this film, the Bizarre is the norm, with Reality
intruding only sporadically. Completed in 1989,
Meet the Applegates
buzzed into local cineplexes in 1991.
