  • Family Weekend is the kind of dark-for-dark's sake, wannabe quirkfest that proves indie films can be just as clichéd and vapid as the most soulless Hollywood movies. show more

  • Despite the promise Epps and Turner show in their film’s finest moments, we’re still talking about a movie that tries to wring jokes from puppet therapy. show more

  • Although Rulin displays a compelling neurotic edge as the driven Emily, Chenoweth and Modine are unable to breathe much life into their schematic roles, while the supporting players are basically saddled with conveying a compendium of quirks. show more

    Loved this movie !! Cracked me up !! No clue what movie the supposed critics watched but I figure they fastforwarded through the whole movie and missed what it was all about.

    SUPER FLICK !! I totally agree with jbw620. As usual, the critics do not know jack. For anyone over 14, this is a great fun family movie that at the end will leave everyone with a big smile and their toe tapping. Buy the DVD or see it on VOD. It will make your \"family weekend\" great.

    screw the critics-see this movie. family and loyalty, not individuality is what we\'ve lost in this technological world we live in. this is a good movie because it makes you feel for each of the characters (except grandma).
