Some funny moments
3 November 2011 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

The scenario is annoying Mom moves in with son and wife. Expected this to be a bit strained given the subject matter. Actually it was unexpectedly funny in parts. Dax has some good sarcastic lines. Liv Tyler's is pretty but her little girl voice is a bit annoying at times. Diane Keaton is good given a role that could be a bit tiresome. She is very slim and it's nice to see someone who has let herself age naturally. She can play so many roles that others who have had plastic surgery can't.

The writing has some unexpected humor. Don't really see the jokes coming from afar. The funeral scene is quite hilarious. Overall it's okay to watch if you have the time.
