I say Go! I really enjoyed such an interesting and sweet story. It's mostly dramatic but it has it's moments of humor. And what a shocker... I cried. But not until the end.. and it was a good cry :) Also, I have to say I really liked these characters. They each had a lot of depth. It was quite wierd seeing Michelle Pfeiffer in an older role. Not bad, just wierd.

Very Rain Man-esque

Self absorbed Sam learns that his distant father has died, then learns that he has a sibling he never knew about who gets his father's money while he gets the record collection. I felt that within the first 30 minutes I was seeing a movie loosely based on Rain Man. I wished I had waited for a $1 RedBox rental.

Great movie! I laughed and I cried. I would see it again and again. Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks did a great job as well as the boy who played Josh. Great job all around.

Not a "feel good"

We were disappointed. The only character that was likable was the girl friend and she only had a very small part. Disturbing story about a disturbing family.

People Like Us- Family twisting & Working thru Life

This is not an Action Film- if you are a Guy's Guy that gets bored with Chick Flicks, then stay away from People Like Us- It is my kind of movie- Throwing some Life Curves and Seeing Alex Kurtzman direct Chris Pine & Elizabeth Banks along with Michelle Pfeiffer, Olivia Wilde & Michael Hall D'Addario through it all. IMO, Chris Pine & Elizabeth Banks do a Fabulous Job of bringing the Reality & Drama of their situation to the screen with great performances by Pfeiffer (who would expect different, right?) & Beautiful Olivia with the Gutsy-In-Your-Face kid of Michael Hall D'Addario. Yes, it takes a while to develop; but, when it did develop, you were crying and hoping this family could work through what their father had set up years earlier! Kids will be bored. Passionate & Emotional performances by everyone. I give it 4 Stars- only because it does take a while to get to the good stuff- but make no mistake- this is a Must See Performance if you enjoy this type of film!
