Storyline

Frank Goode lives by himself in Elmira, NY, a recent widower with heart trouble, retired from a factory job, proud of having pushed his adult children toward success. In the summer, all four kids bail on a reunion, so, against doctor's orders, Frank decides to surprise each with a visit. He sets out to see his artist son in New York City, his daughter the ad exec in Chicago, his son the conductor on tour and presently in Denver, and his daughter who's a performer in Vegas. None are as he imagines or hopes. Will they let him see themselves as they are, and can this dad adapt? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In the scene where Rosie (Drew Berrymore) and Frank (Robert De Niro) are having a dinner together, you can glimpse 2 long-rabbit ears of a big metal-mask hanged on the wall, just behind the opened door: that is the Frank-the-rabbit mask of "Donnie Darko", which Drew Barrymore was one of the producers.

Goofs

During the film, telephone conversations are heard as if coming from the "wires" on the poles next to the track or road. Long distance telephone lines have been buried below ground in cables and later, fiber optic lines, since the 1950s. The wires shown are electric or signaling wires. See more »

Very depressing, but good!
20 November 2009 | by froggthejamSee all my reviews

Went to a screening of this film today, and I had decided not to watch the trailer, or read anything about the movie before. Looking at the poster, I was expecting a Christmas-y comedy or something like that. I was totally wrong (and don't get me wrong this is definitely not a bad thing for the movie!) Just don't expect a laugh out loud comedy. It did have it's funny moments though, and those were great. The movie made me feel really really bad for the De Niro character, and through the whole thing just made me want to go give him a big hug LOL. De Niro's performance was great and made you feel what that character was feeling at that time. The other performances were also fairly good. All in all, a good movie as long as you are not expecting a straight out comedy! I would definitely recommend seeing this one when it comes out in theaters.
