Don't bother
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think filmmakers need to stop putting their family dysfunction on screen and find other topics to make movies about. And for god's sake learn proper English.

The acting is stilted. The story a retread. And certain actors are so far outside their comfort range it's obviously difficult for them to get through this. The break up of the stories feels contrived as well.

This would have played better if we'd been given at least one scene tying the families together in the early part of the story.

This is almost two hours I could have spent watching paint dry. Or re-watching something like It Runs in the Family.

Can't Gale find any decent roles to play? At this rate the guy will never have a decent career.
