Everybody's Fine: Film review

Robert De Niro stars in a gentle family drama as a widower rounding up his four offspring

Robert De Niro eases into a Spencer Tracy career phase for this gentle, lump-in-the-throat family drama, remade from a 1990 Italian movie by Giuseppe Tornatore, Stanno Tutti Bene, starring Marcello Mastroianni. Lonely widower Frank Goode travels around the ­country in a fraught attempt to round up his busy grownup children for the first ­family get-together since their mother's funeral eight months previously.

This is a sweet-natured film on the saccharine borderline, but with interesting moments; it does not deserve the cold critical response it has so far been given in the Us, and the 66-year-old De Niro gives what, for my money, is his first decent, watchable performance in quite a while. British writer-director Kirk Jones has persuaded him to turn the heat down under his trademark ­mannerisms and tics. It is good for

Theatrical Review: Everybody’S Fine

Rating: 7.5/10

Writer/director: Kirk Jones

Cast: Robert DeNiro, Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale, Sam Rockwell

Studio: Miramax

A remake of Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore’s (Cinema Paradiso) 1990 film of the same name, Everybody’S Fine tells the story of Frank Goode (Robert DeNiro), a recent widower out of touch with his four children (Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale, Sam Rockwell, and Austin Lysy). And so he decides to do what any elderly parent with a heart condition would…set out on a trek by way of plane, train, and automobile across America to drop in and surprise his kids one by one. After all, if they aren’t going to come see him, why not take the initiative and go see them, right? Wrong.

'Everybody's Fine' movie review

Courtesy of Miramax Films.

In the movie Everybody's Fine, Robert De Niro calms down a bit and acts his age.  Much like Jack Nicholson did in About Schmidt, De Niro gets somber and reflective as he moves through this modern-day tale, depicting the current status of the American family.  Although released during the holiday season, prepare for a depressing yet intelligent story.  

We meet Frank Goode (Robert De Niro) as a retired man who recently had to deal with the death of his wife.  His big ambition is trying to get all four of his grown-up children to come home and sit at the same table.  The problem is that Amy (Kate Beckinsale lives in Chicago.  Robert (Sam Rockwell) is constantly on tour in an orchestra.  Rosie (Drew Barrymore) is apparently a Las Vegas stage performer.  David (Austin Lysy) lives in NYC and keeps to himself.  Despite all the logistical obstacles,

Everybody’s Fine Review — John’s Take

Around 3/4 of the way through Everybody’s Fine — the new dramatic comedy from Kirk Jones that functions as a remake of the Italian film Stanno tutti bene — Robert De Niro’s character Frank Goode has a conversation with a female truck driver as he hitches a ride to visit one of his grown children who have dispersed themselves across the country. The driver acknowledges that she lost her husband to alcoholism, while Goode mentions that he’s “lost” his wife as well.

Actually, Goode has lost everybody important to him. His wife has passed away, and she was the one who the children (played as adults by Drew Barrymore, Sam Rockwell, Austin Lysy and Kate Beckinsale) felt more comfortable communicating with; in her absence, he learns nothing new about his family and almost all threads have been severed. His journey to reacquaint himself with them is motivated by loss and the impending fear of death,

'Everybody's Fine' Too Cloying to Feel Authentic

Everybody's Fine seems tailor-made for those with big hearts, small brains, and a wad of tissues in their pockets. Despite a solid cast and strong source material, this remake of a 1990 film from Cinema Paradiso director Giuseppe Tornatore quickly devolves into a mess of treacle and tears.

In the comedy-tinged drama, recently widowed Frank Goode (Robert De Niro) has lost touch with his grown children Amy (Kate Beckinsale), Rosie (Drew Barrymore), Robert (Sam Rockwell), and David (Austin Lysy), particularly since the death of his beloved wife. When everyone fails to show up for a family event at his home, Frank decides to head across the country to surprise each of his sons and daughters.

A trip to New York finds artist David absent from his downtown apartment, and Frank's other visits don't go much better. He is quickly shooed away from Amy's Chicago home, and his arrival in Robert's Denver doesn't last much longer.
