Ryan Galloway at Yellowhammer press posted a review of the film on the Yellowhammer blog.

He writes:

"Nothing seems forced or staged, likely because it doesn’t have to be. The Whites do well enough to unconsciously lampoon themselves, and that’s what ultimately makes this film a success.

The entire family is utterly unconscious of larger social norms and that gives them the freedom to break them often, mostly while drunk, high, or a combination of both. Though they’re keenly aware of their infamy in the county, they simply don’t care and will do whatever they choose, regardless of the consequences. That reckless carefree attitude is born from a shared fatalism; they all know they’re going nowhere but seem in an awful hurry to get there."
