Storyline

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide-driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves. Written by Warner Bros.

Great, Tropper gives us the perfect film version for his book.
20 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I would rate this movie an 8 or 9 out of ten because I am part of the target audience. I read the book, Tropper does a great job of translating that to the screen with the right blend of people.

Bateman is fantastic. One reviewer said that everyone is filled with flaws, but I thought the characters seemed extremely real. Imagine a member of your immediate family passing, and then sitting in a house with everyone else in the family for 7 days. Flaws are going to be shown. They will be plenty. This movie is about love. But it is about love for people that matter, even if you forgot who they are. Go see it!
