Why I love this movie
3 August 2004 | by SELYNNPSee all my reviews

I love this movie!! I watch it again and again it is so very funny. Holly Hunter is hysterical and so is her nutty family!!! I have to watch it every thanksgiving! I just love it!! My favorite part of the movie is when Tommy Larson played by Robert Downey Jr. comes home and wakes his family. we laugh until we cry. I think it is a really funny movie . I think every one can relate to having an off the wall relative like Aunt Gladys. If you are looking for a movie that is funny and all about family this is good for a laugh. The family is funny and real I have a sister just like Joanne. The overall movie is just simply funny and to laugh at them as a family is to laugh at your self.
