i couldn't finish it
9 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this film is shockingly monotonous and tasteless to the bone. reality TV shows are the worst idea ever came up on the monitor since TV was invented. who would be so interested in seeing other family's 24/7 activities? we have to take 'travel' for instance, sightseeing means that you'd better look every thing from afar; because only distance would give more room and space for your imagination, a general impression from afar, looking around but not focusing would not affect your mind with burden; because once if you look every thing so close, like seeing things so close through a magnifier, a microscope, nothing would be the same as you look from afar. it is distance that would generate more nicer scenes. looking from afar of a cityscape would always better, because you won't see garbage littered around in the city streets, homeless people pan handling.

why you need shutters, shades, drapes, front door, fences for your home and separate it from others? because you don't want other people to know that even your life is no different from theirs, you still need certain privacy; because even in your own home, going to the bathroom, taking a shower, you still want to close the door before taking off your clothes, you still want to use shower curtain when you take shower, not just to prevent water from splashing on the floor, it's because you also need certain degree of privacy.

this film only show the shallowness of the American public. by allowing cameras into your home, your house, to disarm your basic privacy is just too stupid to be acknowledged. if you hate CCTV on every corner of your neighborhood, if you hate government to wiretap your phone calls, check your emails, why you would allow 'big brother' move into your home? i could never understand why media manipulates people to sacrifice and give up their fundamental right so easily.

Diane Lane is one of the most talented actors that i always love and respect, but i really don't like to see that she always habitually raising her eyebrows, wrinkled the skin on her forehead with so many deep monkey lines whenever she spoke. when she was younger, it's tolerable, but the unavoidable aging process has made the wrinkles over her eyebrows so deep and so ugly. this was also one of the reasons that i couldn't hang on to watch this film longer, i just couldn't stand it.
