Storyline

After their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide-driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves. Written by Warner Bros.

User Reviews

 
I liked it ...
8 October 2014 | by SwallowbrookFLSee all my reviews

This is my first review on IMDb ever ... I am not even an amateur critic.

The movie is almost completely dialogue. If you want an action flick or YA humour look elsewhere.

Everyone did a great job of creating a unique character. And the characters interacted in a variety of interesting ways. And it was all realistic though exaggerated as all movies are.

As always I loved Tina Fey, and found Jane Fonda interesting in her odd but very good acting technique and presentation.

It was, in a word, poignant.

I recommend it.
