Adult siblings Sammy Prescott and Terry Prescott have had a special bond with each other since they were kids when their parents were tragically killed in a car accident. That bond is why single mom Sammy, who still lives in the family home in Scottsville, upstate New York with her eight year old son Rudy, is excited to hear that Terry, who she has not seen or heard from in a while, is coming home for a visit. That excitement is dampened slightly upon Terry's arrival, when she learns that he, broke, is only there to borrow money. As adults, Sammy, who works as a lending officer in the local bank, is seen as the responsible sibling, while unfocused Terry is seen as the irresponsible drifter.

when I went to see You can count on me, I thought it was going to be some good and sensitive movie about families torn apart. Of course I did, as I had seen it had a prize at Sundance! But you know what? I almost slept! And I dont often sleep at a movie. But this movie is just full of clichés about religion, psychology... It's all so conventional. you dont even get interested by the actors nor their characters! It could have been great, there are some interesting things in the screenplay but... I may be the only one (well, not a friend of mine agree) that have thought this movie was really not worth to be seen, but, i had to claim it!
