I couldn't help but be reminded of "Home for the Holidays"...
16 March 2003 | by (Santa Barbara, CA) – See all my reviews

When I first starting watching this movie, I couldn't help but be reminded of Home for the Holidays. Sure enough, it played out much the same with the same kind of scenarios. Whereas the actors in the other movie were able to keep us entertained, the likes of Piper Laurie and Vitamin C couldn't quite draw me in. It's not bad and if you want to see an Irish-American family reunion and all that ensues. Right from the start, the mother states that she's taken the pledge and there will be no drinking. Almost everyone is having relationship problems or some kind that would definitely drive some to drink. If you want to see how it plays out, sneaking liquor, who's sleeping with whom, then it will probably squeak by marginally holding your attention. Sometimes it's good to watch these kind of movies to make you feel better about your own family. I will warn you there is a scene that rivals the hot tub scene with Kathy Bates and Jack Nicholson in About Schmidt, though not quite so graphic.

**1/2 (Out of 4)
