Storyline

When 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.

Just as expected
16 February 2015 | by cuthbertjoelSee all my reviews

I think this is an enjoyable movie as long as you know what you're getting into. The main actors of Jason Bateman and Tina Fey should tip you off that this won't be troubling the scorecards at the Oscars. Jason Bateman is an enjoyable actor to watch. I concede, he plays the same sort of character each time but he brings a laugh and a smile to my face. The plot line is admittedly fairly paper thin to get all of these characters together, but there's enough laughs and contrived family moments to be a fairly decent bit of nonsense to watch. A couple of good exchanges revolving around Bateman/Fey/Fonda were very funny. All in all, just a fairly decent comedy that I enjoyed for what it was but it won't be sticking with me for years to come.
