Storyline

Every year the Gilbert family looks forward to the annual Gilbert Cup competition. Everyone, that is, except Dil, the youngest Gilbert sibling. He's never won the cup, not once. Dil's girlfriend, super-motivated and ultra-competitive Katherine, is determined to change Dil's luck, but can she change a 25-year losing streak? It won't be easy. The competition is beyond fierce, and if there's such a thing as obsessive competitive disorder, Dil's overachieving siblings Gil and Lil are certifiable. The Gilbert's go the distance in events that test their intelligence, agility, and sanity. The winning Gilbert gets the cup and the glory. Who will be the last Gilbert standing? Does Dil stand a chance? Let the games begin... Written by Alex

Goofs

Firstborn son Gil was said to have been born right after the Carter-Reagan election (1980), making him 26 at most (assuming the movie takes place in 2006). However, the Gilbert Cup, a competition between the three siblings, is in its 25th year, and Will makes a reference to Gil being born "over thirty years ago". See more »

Very Cute
5 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every year the Gilbert family, parents Will and Carol and their kids, Gil, Lil, and Dil, get together and the kids compete for the Gilbert Cup. Dil has never won in the 25 years that they have been doing this, but this year is looking up. He is a successful lawyer, has a great apartment, a new car, and a new girlfriend. After his girlfriend, Katherine, invites herself along, he finds himself swept up in the competition. As he gets more annoyed with his family and Katherine, he runs into his childhood friend, April.

I thought this movie was pretty cute. Being a TV movie, it doesn't get the length needed to expand on the characters and plot, but the cast does a great job. Christopher Gorham as Dil perfectly balances a sweet boy-next-door cuteness with a kind of goofy sexiness. Charisma Carpenter as Katherine is wonderfully self-centered and aggressive. Terry Bradshaw as Will and Fiona Reed as Carol are great as the loving and misguided parents. Nicholas Brendan as Gil is good as the very competitive oldest brother and Jennifer Robertson is good as the sister with her own secrets. My favorite character was April, played wonderfully by Mayko Nguyen. She totally captured April's feelings for Dil and her pride and confidence in him as well as her sense of humor and playfulness.

I think that the movie is definitely worth the time and it is a great family movie.
