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.

I guess I expected so much more from this all star cast. There are some moments that are really not predictable. However, suffice it to say that watching a typical bunch of people sit around after a death to have space aliens didn't happen. However the ending of the plot seems so implausible. Was the end an after thought? It seems like someone said, hey I know,let's just throw this in without any foundation or real build up, maybe people will think this is interesting. This moving could be another Big Chill - not. Maybe a Big Fart. I have never been so bored with middle and upper class morons with their stupid problems. I think they should all live in a group home. At least there are more interesting ideas emanating from there. Robert Stack
