Storyline

Four separate sets of stories about Vancouver based siblings are told. Rory has just flown down to Los Angeles to spend time with Justin, his Hollywood movie star brother. Rory once had minor success in Hollywood as an actor, and encouraged Justin to give Hollywood a try. Once close, their relationship has changed by Justin's stardom, especially as Rory tries to find his place in the world. Jerry, a schizophrenic, is at a crossroads in his life. As such, his sister, Louise, feels that she needs to take care of him, especially as he was her protector when they were growing up. Louise would like to tell Jerry what she really thinks but doesn't know if she is brave enough to tell off a mentally ill person. Their relationship has an added complication in Ringo, Jerry's new ageist lawyer. Nikki doesn't see her older half sister Maggie much, only when Maggie calls whenever she is in trouble and needs help. Nikki, a struggling actress, would like a "Nikki" in her life, which she really needs... Written by Huggo

So boring it made me fall asleep
15 April 2012 | by nbg1446See all my reviews

This film is so boring that it actually made me fall asleep. The acting is very wooden and TBH I really can't see any point in it apart from siblings are forever arguing and no matter how much they may hate each other at some point in their life (or all) they still deep down care for that person. This whole film could have been done and dusted in about 20 mins. It had no beginning, middle or end. Yes, there were some funny bits but all in all it was just a boring peace of documentary with surprisingly wooden actors (TBH I was surprised at how wooden some of the actors considering the shows and films they have been in (Glee, jennifers body, red riding hood) and if I was a producer/director I wouldn't want any of these people in any of my films because of their acting skills. None of the actors shined and you was just left thinking "wow was that it" If you want a film to send you to sleep because it is so boring then watch this it will do it for you! Lol x
