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!

Gotta go!

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.

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.

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.
