Storyline

Michael, a college student, visits his girlfriend Gabriella and her family for Christmas in Canada. When he gets there, she tells him that she doesn't love him any more. Michael attempts to see what is happening. Meanwhile, her family is exceedingly strange: her father is an atheist writer who spends most of his time wandering the house nude. Her mother is a devout Catholic who bears eccentricities of her own. The sisters along with Michael visit their grandmother at a mental institution, where she mistakes Michael for her dead husband. Meanwhile Gabriella's sisters express interest in him. Granny escapes the hospital and heads back to her home in the woods, and the family chases after her, and Michael is kept reeling.

Not what you'd expect.
27 July 2002 | by L_MillerSee all my reviews

Jennifer Connelly + "Teen Comedy" = loads of T&A, right? No. This movie is about a thousand times smarter and more reflective than that. This movie made me more interested in seeing her movies for her acting and not just the yards of sweaty flesh. She's made some crapola since then; "Inventing the Abbotts" was a gigantic waste of everyone involved, "Mulholland Falls" made me genuinely wonder if she was about to pull a Bridget Fonda but then "Requiem for a Dream" and "A Beautiful Mind" set the world to right. This is a preview of the kind of career choices she was going to start making, with occasional forays into titillation-land to cover the rent.

It's just a movie, it's not going to reach out and change you or make you see God or anything. You will have to do that yourself. But it does draw you in anticipating a standard farce and instead getting a reflection on desire, wishes and the true definition of a life well lived.

There's plenty of teeny skin-and-blood (both original and new Irony-flavored) flicks out there, rent those if you want to be cool like everyone else. If you want to spend some time musing about a movie after you see it, rent this.
