A New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment) apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer) and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as the possibility of realizing them dwindles.
Despite playing the youngest sibling, Ben Stiller is older than Adam Sandler and Elizabeth Marvel. See more »
While Danny is on the phone with Eliza (who is at Bard College), he states, "I might go stay at Jean's in Rochester for a while. I'll be closer to you...". The distance between Rochester and Bard College is actually significantly greater than New York City to Bard. See more »
It was like walking barefoot through broken glass to get a milkshake. I loved the milkshake, but, you know, my feet were bleeding.

The Meyerowitz Stories(New and Selected): Written and Directed by Noam Baumbach.
Netflix really promoted this movie hardcore. They made it seem entertaining and it appeared to be a good time. I was wrong. This is a movie that it is all about the characters. You have to either find the characters amusing or find a connection with what they're going through in their lives, you might be interested in this ride. However if you find the characters to be insufferable much like I did, this will be painful to sit through.
I can't fault the actors for this movie. They do a good choice bringing these characters to life and I have to admit that I have seen no other movies by this particular director. I might have brought this upon myself.
This is a movie that lives inside this rich upper class composed of selfish and messed up artists. This reminded me of The Royal Tenenbaums but nowhere near as stylized. It is based around this overbearing father figure who is a teacher and an artist. He expects everyone in the movie to be focused on him and his life. If you met someone like this in real life, you would run screaming away from them immediately. It felt like that while I was watching it.
This is another movie that just sort of meanders and it just ends. I think this might be a series of stories about this family from a bunch of different people's perspectives. You have to be on board with these characters. Again as I mentioned previously, I was not. I chuckled a bit at the extremely pornographic movies the teenage daughter of Adam Sandler distributed to her family. It does poke fun at snooty pretentious artist type who only care about the attention but it's not enough to make this a good film.
I give this movie a D.
