Where do I begin? Very early in the movie you knew how this was going to turn out. Absolutely no surprises. In addition, so many things didn't make sense - the brother was always jumping into the sister's car without a thought to leaving his car behind. The kid puts the key in the lock but the door opens without turning the key; this sloppiness continued throughout the movie. And the ending - well it was so implausible. Save your money.

This could have been a better story. I hated the Chris Pine character. I don't condone deception, especially with family and his character is a totally unsympathetic. Say, I am your brother, lets get to know each other,we can start with I hated our father too. Don't flirt with your sister. Wait for it to come to netflix, not worth $11. This is an adult drama.

Interesting story lines coupled with engaging characters made this a surprise experience on opening night. Recommended for a two hour take-away without a lot of fluff.

Good acting, directing, cinematography, and script. It's a movie for all ages. It makes you laugh but it has its sad moments.

This is a warm, funny and surprisingly suspenseful movie. The writers and directors did a great job since from the moment we sat down, we became more and more invested in the charachters. GREAT to see Michelle Pfifer. Good casting as well - especially having the little guy look like the pictrues of his grandfather. Loved the ending to. It got applause from the viewers!
