Kirstie Alley Gives a Strong Performance
20 March 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Bring it on and Kirstie Alley does and then some. Doesn't hit a false note in Family Sins. From her sunny suburban mom persona too the outright brutal cruelty w. her family, she is the master manipulator.

She is just bone chilling in this role. It was great to see her in top form and thought the supporting cast was stellar. Just check out the stepford children and the long suffering Marie and Nadine, not to mention the son-in-law unfortunate enough to marry into this mess.

While Will Patton doesn't give the strongest of performances, his role as the prosecutor out to "get the Gecks," is solid.

All in all a good film about a very tragic story.
