Awesome Movie!!
26 September 2009 | by BarnBum1211See all my reviews

I loved this movie. I haven't seen the first movie "An Unexpected Family" but they recap it just enough so you know what is going on. ALL the actors in this movie are superb and you won't want the movie to end. It's a shame it hasn't come out on DVD but even though you're plugging back in your old VCR it is so very worth it. Stockard Channing is awesome in this movie, like all her others, and she and Stephen Collins have great chemistry. The children are great and the story line is awesome. Stockard Channing has many funny lines in this movie that will make you laugh out loud! You never get bored watching and I suggest it to anyone who has ever had family problems or, ANYONE at all!
