So if they had just moved into that lovely house, how was he friends with Billy since high school and why were the kids new to the school..Where did they come from? And if he was such a good carpenter/contractor, why did he move into such a lousy looking house and why didn't he fix it up a little bit, or at least fix the roof from leaking..I know there's a lot of plot holes, but it was a funny movie.

To be fair, just because he just moved to that town doesn't mean he couldn't have been friends with Billy.

Dean & his family easily could have just lived in a different town. Dean never says "We just moved to this STATE." He says we just moved 'here'.

I wondered too why he didn't fix up the house. But watching his parenting style & what he did when he wasn't working (he drank beer & TV and not much else), it seems more like he was lazy and did not care.

MY FATHER IS A CARPENTER AND CONTRACTER....OUR HOUSE WAS A SUCKY MESS GROWING UP..YOU WORK DOING SOMETHING ALL DAY ,THEN YOU COME HOME AND DONT HAVE ANY DESIRE TO THAT SHIT AT YOUR OWN HOUSE FOR FREE.

I guess you don't bring your work home with you.
