Pass the laughing gas!
7 August 2012 | by chwrelSee all my reviews

Why is this family in a perpetual fit of giggles? These people are either in a hot tub together, giggling, or sitting around in a circle singing songs, while giggling, or swimming and giggling or eating food together and giggling. I could go on. The film is basically scenes of the family giggling together sewn together with a backdrop of homogeneous, gentle music. Sorry guys- nice shooting and the actors did what they could with the writing, but the truth (if you can bare to hear it- the writers don't seem to think you can) is that no "ordinary family" enjoys their own company that much.

Aside from the above criticism, in which I discredited the film's realism, there are several redeeming factors which drag this film out of ridiculously bad film territory. One being the pretty scenery. I challenge you to watch this and not envy the folks living in that gorgeous house. Another being the central theme of the gay son wanting acceptance from his brother. I'm not going to go on about this, but I think that it gives the film a point. It isn't a pointless film, which is good.
