Quotes:

[first lines]

Narrator:
Henry Meyerwitz had never wanted any children. But when he had his first, he remembered an old proverb. Commit a sin twice and it will not seem a crime. So he had more. And once a year, his sins, all grown up, gathered to celebrate his birthday. He didn't want to be there. They didn't want to be there. This year however, a book came out that made it even worse.



User Review

Not Too Bad

Rating: 6/10


This movie about a dysfunctional family being torn apart by a book
published by the youngest member of the clan, Nathan, is a decent way
to spend an hour and twenty minutes.

Of course, with its TV-bred cast, (Judy Greer, Michael C. Hall, Rainn
Wilson, & Sarah Silverman), narration and short length, this film comes
off more like a middle episode of a sitcom. In itself it is not
extremely satisfying, though it has some good moments both of humor and
drama.

And that's important. The trailer may not make this seem like a movie
with any dramatic weight, but it is. There are some funny moments, but
the more dramatic ones overshadow those. This is a dramedy that is
trying to market itself as comedy. That said, these actors handle the
dramatic moments incredibly well, especially coming from such comedic
backgrounds.

Don't expect this to be the film adaptation of Arrested Development
some people are making this out to be; though it has some funny moments
(really genuinely laughable things), it's not the laugh-riot you'd
expect an Arrested Development movie to be.

So yeah, in a nutshell, this movie is a well-done (if but slightly
average) dramatic movie with good comedic moments.
