Family Weekend follows 16-year-old Emily Smith-Dungy (Olesya Rulin) an incredibly motivated overachiever who has grown increasingly frustrated with her parents' lack of support and guidance. Her mom, Samantha (Kristin Chenoweth), is a career-focused, no-nonsense, high powered business executive. Her dad, Duncan (Matthew Modine), is a happy go-lucky artist who can't be bothered to earn a paycheck. When they miss their daughter's big jump-roping competition, Emily hits her breaking point and takes it upon herself to restore order in the home. With the help of her siblings, they unite and take their parents hostage in hopes to become a "family" again.
