Very impressed

the actors in this drama did such a good job the director may never quit bowing to cries of 'encore.' Terrific casting. Chris Pine carries this movie very well for a new kid on the block. Pfieffer and Banks do exactly what we expect of two seasoned actors. Very touching film with some nice 'kabaam' moments, just when you need them. And of all things...hollywood seems to have come up with an original plot for this one. I wish there were enough story line to create a sequel just so we could see this group together again. Bank's young son was a great surprise in how well he fit into the story and took his part to the front. If you enjoy movies with great dialog backed up by strong acting, go now, today and then again next week.

I enjoyed this movie. If you are looking for a comedy, don't pick this movie. Although there are some funny scenes, it's a drama. Worth seeing.

I'd give it a C+

Definitely a chick flick, but from a guy's point of view, it keeps your interest pretty well. Ok for kids except for one gratuitous (but non-explicit) sex scene that didn't need to be there. Some very touching scenes. Some very annoying "what was that all about" scenes. Good casting. Writing ok if a bit contrived at times. Well-filmed.

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.

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.
