    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

    For a long while, director Benjamin Epps goes for breakneck farce; at its best, this is a batty mixture of family-values editorial and teen spoof. show more

    Family Weekend is no worse than many of the dysfunctional family comedies that populate the Sundance Film Festival — "Little Miss Sunshine" is name-checked within the movie itself — but isn't any better either. show more

    This belabored comedy, directed by Benjamin Epps, has a slick visual veneer and some capable performances, especially by Ms. Rulin and Ms. King. But the script, by Matt K. Turner, is loaded with contradictions, its hollow flirtation with subversion amount to airplane pablum. show more

    Quirky indie hell, thy name is Family Weekend. Benjamin Epps's film is the very definition of affected cutie-pie whimsy and weirdness. 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).
