I have no idea why anyone likes this movie. It's really just a weak _Big Chill_ knockoff. Sure, it's got some beautiful fall colors -- it's set in deciduous forest in southern Canada at the height of fall color, after all. But the premise is preposterous, the plot is even more preposterous, and -- most egregious of all -- a cast of talented actors is given insipid dialog and absurd motivation to work with.
If there's one positive aspect to this flick, it's that it demonstrated to me just how good _Big Chill_ really was (even though that film really annoys me, too). At least the characters in Kasdan's flick act like real people and have real lines.
I'll add that it has one of the most absurd "munchies" scenes ever committed to American film. Do NOT waste your time on this, unless you're a sucker for feelgood nonsense.
