‘Mad’ Charlie Today

Charlie Sheen returns with Mad Families, an original film debuting today on Sony’s free streaming service Crackle.

Sheen, who also executive produced, is Charlie Jones, described as “a loveable man-child with a heart of gold and a unique way of looking at the world.” Fred Wolf, who directed and produced, co-wrote the script with SNL alum David Spade.

The plot presents “three families – one Hispanic, one African American, one Caucasian – who find themselves sharing the same camping space on a Fourth of July holiday weekend. When none of them volunteer to vacate the site, they try to figure out a way to cohabitate peacefully, but eventually decide on a series of competitions to determine a winner.”

Leah Remini, who starred alongside Kevin James in the series King of Queens, plays Charlie’s step-mother, Cheyenne.

Here’s the Mad Families trailer:
