Toni Collette, Anna Faris, David Duchovny, Ron Livingston, and Kathleen Turner star in this somewhat dark, risqué comedy about cousins attempting to suck up to a dying aunt and obtain her lavish estate. The director and actors have a lot on their plate in attempting to balance this daring comedy with the immoral actions and rather overt sexual interplay and even a rather M-rated scene late in the movie. There are plenty of reasons for the many audience members to be turned off by this movie, nevertheless with a finely, crafted delicate script and the adequately balanced diversity of the character roles, the humor, the sexual innuendos, the immoral decisions offer up a fascinating interplay of dilemmas that keep the audience off balance. The climax of the movie has a satisfying but nebulous ending for audience members to choose from. The key to watching this movie is to focus on Ron Livingston's and Toni Collette's characters as the moral backbone of the movie and avoid experiencing just a one-tone aspect of the movie which is in reality quite off-putting, repelling and borders on disgusting. Overall, The Estate is a difficult, different, and in some ways a refreshing and deeper, enlightening look at the material world of today.
