A tale of two cities in this comic family-drama., 1 October 2013
Author: Bo Atdrinks from United Kingdom

The myth of Thanksgiving, the American-dream dissected, shattered, and taken apart, or is it?

This film is set in two cities. One city is New York City. The other is Ocean City in New Jersey, on the opposite side of the Hudson River.

Lead actress Kristen Wiig plays Imogene. A difficult role to play, because Imogene is not really very nice at all. She is a New York-socialite and is arrogant, demanding, and generally unpleasant. Film opens with her in NY with her rich boyfriend, flat and job.

This self-centred woman has a massive change in circumstances which end up forcing her to return to her family in Ocean City. Thus film opens like 'Hope Floats' (1998). Like Sandra Bullock in that film, Imogene has to return home, having not fulfilled her expectations.

Now socialite Imogene has left glamorous NY and returns to a more working-class Ocean City, and her working-class family. Annette Bening, of 'Ruby Sparks' (2012), plays her mother. An unrecognizable Matt Dillon plays a boyfriend. However, the real stand out performance, is by Christopher Fitzgerald, who plays brother Ralph.

The problems and the disputes in the family are shown realistically, as are the interactions between the members of the family. The scenes between brother and sister capture the relationship perfectly. The pair have grown up together, two kids, brother and sister, still always kids with each other.

The contrast between the two cities of NY, and Ocean City, is shown well. In this, film is similar to 'Working Girl' (1988), 'Silver Linings Playbook' (2012) or 'The Heat' (2013). Nathan Corddry of 'Harry's Law', like in 'The Heat', here too makes a brief appearance. Class-differences and family-differences are portrayed well.

The Theo Paphitis autobiography has a jaw-dropping page one. This film has a similar jaw-dropping twist. There is also a funny twist reminiscent of 'Ruthless People' (1986).

This is a funny film about the family and the American-dream. Rated 12A in the UK, this film is about the family, but is not a film for the whole family. Two people are seen in bed, not sleeping, and thus 12+ would be a good age guide.

While 'Working Girl' portrayed a rise, this film is more about a fall, and a return home. However some great music, book-ends this film, rather like the 'WG' film.

Film contains comedy, drama and some romance. 9/10.
