Daniel Franzese came into pop culture view for most people after he appeared in the hit movie “Mean Girls.” The 2004 film was written by comedy queen Tina Fey, produced by “Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels and starred a bevy of up-and-coming stars including Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Amy Poehler and more.

Franzese starred as Damian, the flamboyant kid at school who was openly and unapologetically gay. His character had most of the film’s quotable lines, taking “Mean Girls” from a hit teen comedy to a cult status movie that is still played to its rabid fanbase nearly 15 years later.

“I have a history with Watermark,” says Sales Director Danny Garcia. “There was a job opening at a time when I felt like I needed a change, so I seized the opportunity.”

Danny’s history with Watermark dates back to his mid-teens. He was attending a local teen club when the DJ made some derogatory remarks towards the LGBTQ community. Danny felt compelled to write about the experience in a letter to the editor of Watermark. The letter was printed and the radio station hosting the event made the DJ apologize to Danny personally.

The rule with comedy is pretty simple: it has to be funny. Though the family here is under-defined, and the journey isn’t at all surprising – everything is merely a setup for a gag instead of having an actual plot – there are plenty of laughs in this Orlando-based two-hour skit.

For example: when the two drunken sisters meet O-town’s finest, one slurs, “Officer Donuts, why don’t you jump back into your squad car and go save a kitten up a tree, because these pussies are fiiiinne.”

Raise your right hand if you’re left-handed! I’m a lefty and those that are can tell you, it’s not easy.

When I was in first grade, I vividly remember that when it rained during recess my teacher would break out the record player and we’d have to square dance or get up and move. Every time that happened I would break into a sweat. Not because of my dancing skills, but because it took me a long time to distinguish left from right.

“Start on your right foot!” I would naturally start on my left foot, reach with my left hand, turn the faucet toward the right hoping the water would come out…

Families are never easy, and they’re never perfect. Everything is waaaay more complicated than it needs to be. Even with the best setup for normalcy, families can quickly get mired in dysfunction.

Such it is with the hilarious Altman household – so many comic jerks at the center of This is Where I Leave You. They all refer to themselves as “assholes” several times in the film. Even a famous psychotherapist mom (Fonda) cannot keep the clan from sinking into the muck.

And wow, what a lot of muck!
