Quotes

Emily Smith-Dungy: Okay that's great, but where should you have been at 3:30?
Duncan Dungy: You sound like your mother, consumed with time and a schedule. Do not tread that path, remember, it's what you do, not when you do it, it's the what that's important.

A refreshingly funny comedy about a psychotic break turned family event
30 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't think this was going to be funny at all, i passed over it at least three times.... what a mistake, I found this movie to be very funny and entertaining, It also -to me -- points the finger at each and every character and shows their character flaws,

you start out thinking each character might be the "normal"one, only to find yourself asking - is this character a little off?

So , while , to me , it was at times , laugh out loud funny, i never lost the feeling that I was learning a little about people.It also carries a good family feel throughout the whole movie.

The acting and production values are great , There is an emotional aspect to this one also.

It's a movie about a psychotic break- which is a tragic thing --but there are some funny situations that can arise from that. So, there is a "roller-coaster" feel. Ultimately, it is about real life, which ebbs and flows. It made me laugh, I gave it a seven out of ten
