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.

It's an amazing movie filled with love and incredible moments of life.Its about love for your family,a crazy family or a dysfunctional one,one might say but though they've drifted apart a bit they still love each other.You will laugh,cry,feel annoyed at times but most importantly love this movie.You will be laughing at the hilarious scenes and feeling incredibly emotional at times. At first I thought it would just be another movie to follow in the lines of others but it was't. It's fresh,something new and heartwarming. If you're looking for something with a mix of drama,comedy and love,then this is your stop. You won't be disappointed. It's something that I'd want to watch more than once and actually feel like it was a great waste of my time. It's worth it!
