Sons of Tucson is a family comedy about three brothers who hire a charming, wayward schemer to stand in as their father when their real one goes to prison. What begins as a business relationship evolves into something more complex and compelling: a family unlike any we've ever seen. The three brothers find their dad-for-hire, Ron Snuffkin (Tyler Labine), at the local sporting good store. Ron will be forced to draw on a wide array of skills and a vast bag of tricks as he steps into the patriarch role to take care of the boys of the Gunderson family. Robby Gunderson, 8, is a loose cannon who doesn't respond well to authority; Gary Gunderson, 11, is a bright and street-savvy leader who is every bit the con man his father is; and Brandon Gunderson, 13, is a gentle free spirit who simply goes along for the ride.

This is a clear rip-off of Malcolm in the Middle (which I actually liked, as other posters here stated as well). Anyone who can't understand this is simply stupid. Two of the writers of MIM were behind this farce, along with Justin Berfield (whom I actually respected before this) producing it. Justin in fact proves to the world that you simply cannot regurgitate a formula (i.e. 3 brothers against adults) and expect it to work just because a previous hit used it. And sadly, Justin just couldn't resist a spot in FRONT of the camera in the last episode, playing some obnoxious neighbor who everyone is instantly supposed to revile...even though there was no set-up or motivation to do so before this episode...which means it doesn't work. With all disrespect to the brain-dead, clueless wannabe "film critic" here whom no one has ever heard of, listens to or cares about in any way, this mess could only be appreciated by someone too stupid to understand the difference between good and bad comedy.
