When their father passes away, four grown siblings 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.
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
I can't actually understand why so many people rate this movie so low. It has everything. Just, everything.
It starts light, introducing the characters, it starts building storyline, gradually the humor and comedy between the characters becomes more and more fluent.
After the build-up and introduction, there is the storyline. And the storyline just unfolds so brilliantly. I love how every character has it's own unique differences, it's like a family not made for each other, but completely lost without each other.
The ending is just undeniably great, it's one of the better movies I have seen in a long time. Jason Bateman by the way, was born for this role. The movie would have been one big flop if that man wasn't in it. Jason Bateman just makes everything seem a little better.
