Story of our lives
21 October 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this film from the moment it opened. The photography in the beginning was gorgeous! I knew this was "my" film as soon as the family started talking over Thanksgiving dinner. The mom over did herself (again), the Grandmother just isn't all there, and of course the siblings argue over who will say grace. Then after the meal of course the guys watch football and the women do the dishes. And all of this happens, and then what do we do? Relive the nightmare all over again at Christmas... only this time the grandparents out do themselves with gift giving, and the stressful holiday season tends to bring out the worst in families. I felt like the writer of this film had to have lived in my home!

The language was a bit strong, but considering the circumstances of the situations these characters were put through... it's something that can be overlooked. I thought the director did a wonderful job with this film, and the actors were flawless. I think this film was very inspirational on the part of Kellie Martin's character overcoming her broken marriage, drunken mother, and her quest to find her true love. In the end, this film shows it is important to take care of ourselves - physically and emotionally - because "we're the only person we have to live our entire life with."

Good points, good script, the jokes were funny, and the photography was beautifully done! I hope it'll come out on video soon!
