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 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
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).
