unmentionable and unspeakable
The unspeakable act is actually referred to as the unmentionable act several times throughout the movie; I throw that factoid out just as fyi, because it's about as useful and interesting as the film.

I do wish there was a rulebook for quirky-characters-who-live-with-funny-families movies, as the first rule really should be some semblance of identifiable reality, no matter how remote.

These vague, dull, pseudo-academic people live in a bright, decorative, well-maintained house in an upscale Brooklyn neighborhood with nothing but a short dismissive voice-over claiming that nobody knows where their money comes from, and absolutely no indication that anybody in the family is capable of or interested in any kind of regular home maintenance, much less the creativity necessary for the carefully artful appearance of this particular home.

I really have nothing else to add except that in watching this, the fast-forward button is useful, as you won't miss anything.
