 This movie was pretty vapid. My GF dragged me to see it and I just couldn't find anything good about it. From the unbelievable storyline to annoying liberal family (I wish all my sons were gay!) this was just stupid and pretentious. Having Coach smoke dope and eat brownies didn't even do it for me. I'm glad the mom died too.

 I'm calling bs- there are at least 15 movies Stylus hasn't reviewed playing in my city (the majority of them mainstream), and I only looked at a handful of the theaters. (And I don't live near NY or LA). Also, anything you can do to scoot that picture of SJP off the front page will make make your site much prettier. What a painful gal to look at.

 The author of this review lacks a basic understanding of the roots of homophobia.

 I agree this movie isn't.. err... good...The family gathering for a holiday is been done to death (I personaly like "The Myth of Fingerprints" or "Home for The Holidays") but an F for any movie with Rachel McAdams and Clair Danes is a little harsh

 Mr. Foote, your review is spot-on.

 The roots of homophobia? What are they? This MOVIE made me hate gays by the way, and not because of their sexual practices, but just because they were boring and pretentious. Give me my own gay friends any day of the week. And you can take that to the butt.
