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.

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.

Good movie with some good performances. Chris Pine is dreamy and the rest of the cast is great too. Clever script with a touching ending. Good summer feel good film.

Don't listen to the critics. They have their own agenda. This was one of the most heart-warming, practical movies in recent history. It's a blunt, honest look at the effects of dysfunctional families on their children.

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!
