Filthy language was not necessary. We cut it off about 15 minutes into the film.

This is a PG 13 film ????

Why? Why does everything even remotely non-formulaic end up being trashy to entertain? It's not entertaining. Barry Bostwick and Lainie Kazan have really sunk low in their careers to appear in this. I couldn't even finish it. I made it till Joy mentioned condoms, and then I was out of there. I shouldn't have gone past the moment Lainie Kazan met Kyle at the door. I liked the basic premise, which is why I decided to try it. Bad decision. If there was a .2 star, I would have used it - maybe even a .1, or a zero. Seriously. If the director, producer, etc. is reading this review, use your talent better. Everyone else, don't bother.

THis movie was boring and without an interesting plot. The acting was less than adequate. The movie did not elicit joy.

This movie made me laugh and cry too. It was so funny. I loved the characters and the quirkiness of the family. A gem of an indie comedy!

I gave this movie about 20 minutes and felt nothing. I could not connect to the characters. Everything they did and said felt so contrived. The lead male character is a terrible actor. Most of the acting is bad. What is supposed to be quirky about this film and the characters comes across as annoying. Don't waste your time. A real bore. Unemotional, blah.

This is an unusual movie. Not the main stream. Lovely acting and the story of all the characters is done very well. The humor is very dry which I enjoyed. Worth your time.

A film that desperately wanted to be poignant and insightful but instead was predictable and monotonous. It bills as a comedy but the jokes weren't funny, and the characters weren't quirky - just bizarre and unfinished, as if the writer stopped caring halfway through writing - just like the lead character. The actors do their best but the lead comes off as smarmy and a leach, the lead female is mentally unstable. It plays with real issues with the lack of depth and respect required in authentic gallows humor, and its resulting insight. Pass.

Yes, this movie was quite quirky, but cute. I saw the preview and wasn't sure if I'd like it. I'm glad I gave it a shot. Definitely not the normal romantic comedy at all. I like that though, it's a nice change. : )
