Why is it that we all eventually become just like our parents?
28 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is such a funny and charming movie about families and how we all become just like our parents - I had no idea Jimmy Fallon was such a good actor. Sharon Stone is also great and shows that she can really act, which is sometimes lost in the big movies she does. I also love Ileanna Douglas in everything and this is no exception. Like Jimmy Fallon, Tom Arnold also plays a serious role and is able to hold his own with Sharon Stone. The Year of Getting to Know Us reminded me of Garden State but is a little more weird - in a good way. I'm not sure when this movie is going to be released in the UK, but I hope it's soon. It deserves to be seen.
