 "Aftermath on Meadowlark Lane" Review 

"Aftermath on Meadowlark Lane" felt like one of those "insider" films that wants to be much cooler than it actually is. While the Zellner's show potential, with a strong sense of production design and a unique writing sensibility, the film is just a little too off-kilter for its own good.

While on their way to a mariachi recital, a car crash forces a mother and her two semi-adult sons to come to terms with their past...kinda, sorta. It doesn't help that the two sons look as old as their mother, the accompanying musical score is annoying and what's meant to be funny simply isn't so.
