Plot Summary
When their father passes away, four grown, world-weary siblings return to their childhood home and are requested -- with an admonition -- to stay there together for a week, along with their free-speaking mother (Jane Fonda) and a collection of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. As the brothers and sisters re-examine their shared history and the status of each tattered relationship among those who know and love them best, they reconnect in hysterically funny and emotionally significant ways.

  • This comedy about a death is a funeral for the audience. show more

  • Bateman comes off well, humanizing his character with a strain of melancholy that’s one of the movie’s genuinely touching elements. Fey is all right, though she falls back on her patented shtick. Driver makes the most of his hipsterish role, nicely playing off the other siblings’ tension. show more

  • As a film it feels overly familiar, with some amusing scenes, but not enough to make for a wholly satisfying experience. show more

    I disagree whole heartedly with most of these reviews. It was witty and dealt with real life issue in a funny and useful plot. A movie that was watched and enjoyed by the whole family.

    The minuses out weighed the pluses 2 to one. The theme of this movie has been done before and done much better. I think it was the ridiculously over the top, goofy youngest brother that tipped the scale down to a two star rating for me.

    I liked it. Interesting, good acting and diverse cast. Just like life: funny,sad, heart breaking, lessons learned, family dynamics and love.
