All About the Andersons

All About the Andersons

Prepare for aching sides in the hilarious and heartfelt All About the Andersons. The father-and-son sitcom has won a big following in the US thanks to the popular comic stylings of Anthony Anderson (Me, Myself and Irene) — the series star and comedy sensation whose real life inspired the show.

It all begins when struggling actor and suddenly-single dad Anthony (Anderson) moves back into his parents’ house in an effort to provide a stable growing-up environment for 8-year-old Tuga. But this ‘250-pound boomerang’ soon learns that it’s hard to come home again. Although loving mother Flo is on his side, Anthony is constantly clashing with bad-tempered father Joe.

Joe wishes Anthony would give up his acting dreams and take a ‘real’ job in the Anderson barbershop/beauty salon. And he’s not above using extreme measures to keep his son from sponging. Putting a padlock on the fridge, rationing electricity and charging him to sleep in the garage are all part of his eccentric plan to help Anthony grow up. But there’s a soft centre beneath the household head’s crusty exterior, and he loves doting on grandson Tuga — even while complaining about Anthony. ‘Keep the cub, shoot the bear,’ Joe growls to his wife.
