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.

Brilliant and Visceral
20 September 2014 | by Greg-112-226997See all my reviews

What a great film.

Ignore previous reviews. How people can ignore the realities of psychotic family behavior is beyond me. This film smartly peels the layers and transparently reveals all about people running astray with their lives and emotions. It captures how families really are or maybe should be. Americans are all too good at bottling and hiding their real feelings and the result is vapid soullessness. Not with this film. It displays like European honesty ensuring every word drips viscerally from their tongues until the effects are felt. So reassuring in a country gone soft and dull. Amazing performances, sharply written and wildly funny, this film will pull tears, smiles and laughs.
