Wow...this is such a good movie. Really dark and disturbing. very well written and acted. Reminds me of many families.

This was an outstanding movie which I can see why it was not for some people. Sundance critics thought it was good and so did we. It is disturbing for sure, but that is part of the point SL was going for. real life for some people

Ellen Burstyn steals the film. If you like profanity every other word, and not only an emotionally crippled but unlikeable family, you will like this film. An entire crazy family together in one place for a weekend is too much. No one is likeable; that's what makes you unsympathetic. I don't know a family like it, and if this is what the American family has become, we're in troublle. Skip it.

It's unpleasant, shrill and exhausting - everyone's so busy airing their own grievances no one has time to listen to anyone else's - but it's a genuine actors' film anchored by some good performances. Full Review

If this low-budget indie is any indication, the younger Levinson's creative sensibilities appear to be darker than his dad's, the voice clearly his own. Full Review

You could get whiplash watching this bipolar drama jerk between extremes: For every extraordinary scene - such as an authentically awkward exchange between Bosworth and estranged dad Thomas Haden Church - there's a sequence or three that might be extended collegiate acting exercises. Full Review

It's Barkin, though, who holds everything together, even as her character is falling apart. Whether or not she took this role as a favor - Levinson's father, Barry, directed her in "Diner" decades ago - ultimately seems irrelevant. This isn't an invitation you should feel obliged to accept. But if you decide to stop by, she'll be the reason you stay. Full Review

Even at a supposed celebration, the well-bred and well-off aren't really happy at all. So the title is ironic. Thanks for that profound insight. Full Review
