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.

Not Boring because of the Chemistry between the actors.
8 January 2015 | by (the Edge of the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

Not much to tell about this movie. Really.

The premise, you've seen it a million times. The members of a family (I let you to judge if it is unconventional or not) are get together in their hometown because of a funeral.

Movies like this could be comedies, dramas, even thrillers. Most of the times though, is about reconciliation between the members of the family, and re-ignition of old flames from their childhood.

This is most definitely a comedy. There are some dilemmas to deal with, and a few emotional surprises but, although strong, are presented in a fun way.

And there is a lot of fun in this movies, mainly because of the chemistry of some experienced TV actors who can play roles like these in their sleep. Despite some forced clichés the movie is easy to watch. Not boring at all.

Jane Fonda looks surprisingly good for her 77 years (she was also in The Newsroom recently). Maybe there is message there for a healthy way of living for the rest of us! Overall: Not Boring. Starts well and continues like that until the very end. Check it out.
