The Pascal family is a well-to-do, upper class family in UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC. Mrs. Pascal is an austere snob who cares for her family after her husband "mysteriously" left them behind. There is Anthony, the youngest, and the twins: Marty (Hamilton) and Jackie (Posey). Jackie, aka Jackie-O, is spoiled, stuck-up, and [[AxCrazy violently insane]]. She is obsessed with Jackie Onasis and the slaying of UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy. She also has [[BrotherSisterIncest major hots for her twin brother, Marty]]. Marty is perhaps the OnlySaneMan in the family. While he and Jackie did have a [[{{Twincest}} romantic relationship]] in the past, he is trying desperately to leave all of that behind and live a normal life. He visits the family during Thanksgiving and brings along a surprise... his fiancée, Leslie (Tori Spelling).

Leslie is a middle class bakery worker from a very humble background so the snobbish Pascal family has trouble accepting her. It doesn't help that Jackie probably wants to kill her. It also doesn't help that Anthony apparently wants to steal her away from his brother. Oh, and there's a hurricane outside, ensuring that everyone stays in the house. In the span of one night, dark secrets are revealed, a loaded gun goes missing, and HilarityEnsues.

* AristocratsAreEvil: The Pascal family is wealthy and austere. Not only is Jackie violent and crazy, but it's heavily implied the mother is as well (she have killed her husband). Anthony is better, but he's still willing to take advantage of a distraught Leslie just to sleep with her. Marty wants Leslie precisely because she is middle-class and isn't a part of this social circle.
* AxCrazy: Jackie, although she seems to prefer a gun to an axe.
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Marty and Jackie are in an incestuous relationship. The mother seems to know this but doesn't care. Meanwhile, both her and Jackie are violently insane. Anthony seems to be the nicest, but even he is okay with sleeping with his brother's fiance' and taking advantage of her mental state.
