"Mom told me to come." After his mother tells him to visit the family he abandoned, Scott (Phillippe) surprises his sister in law (Paquin) and her kids. Decidind to wait for his brother to come home Scott stays and begins to form a relationship with Katherine's kids in spite of her requests. When Scott begins to act like his old self she wants him out, but he is determined to listen to his mother's advice...even though she is dead. I know what your thinking, a man hears his dead mother and listens, that can't make a good movie. You would be wrong. The acting in this is really good, but the story of each character is so well written and thought out that it really makes the movie that much more enjoyable. 99% of movies like this are very predictable and for the most part this one is too, but there is a twist in this I did not see coming, which also adds to the enjoyment of the movie. This is a surprise sleeper that is very much worth seeing. I recommend. Overall, a little low budget movie that proves good movies can be made with a good script. I give it a B+.

This is your typical heart warming amusing feel good indie flick starring indie perennial favorite Anna Paquin as Katherine. Long lost "white trash Uncle" Scott(Ryan Phillippe) rides in one day on a horse to greet his sister-in-law and former girlfriend. He obeys the indie formula and immediately bonds with his nephew and niece. He claims he is being guided by visions of his dead mother to come back and make amends...a man who has spent the bulk of the last eight years in a mental institution for substance abuse. Chaos erupts and from chaos comes order.

The script is somewhat formulaic with a slight twist on the end. Good acting, slow at times.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity. Paquin in a sexy sando shirt showing side breast, cleavage and high beams. Personally my low brow tastes liked "Uncle Buck" better. Worth a rental.

The film focuses on the relationships of a family - two brothers and their shared love interest, their forgetful father, and the legacy of their mother.

It's been years since I've seen a movie with Ryan Phillippe that I would watch and this is one. Luke Wilson has always been a favorite of mine. And Anna Paquin has always been an actress that I've wavered whether I love or dislike her. The casting was perfectly done.

Ryan as the irresponsible, wandering brother - the black sheep of the family who's been gone for 8+ years. Luke as the perfect husband/provider (the opposite of his brother) who is contemplating divorcing his wife. And lastly, Anna as the woman who has loved both brothers. At first, the younger one Scott and after he left due to a fallout with his father; then she fell for William.

Katherine and William have a marriage that is perfect on the outside; not so much on the inside. Katherine is too busy to spend time with her children or family. Instead, the duties of child-rearing and caring for the house are foisted onto a maid. William is always out of town, a fact that is recognized by Katherine's "so-called" friends.

When Scott shows up after a long absence, he turns their world inside out and manages to bring Katherine, William, and their children back together. Be prepared to shed a few tears at the end.

We've seen this before. A seemingly stable household becomes disrupted when a black sheep relative or friend makes an unscheduled appearance. This might not be the best of the lot buts it's watchable and entertaining.

Here's the scoop. William (Luke Wilson) is in the high-level real estate game. His wife Katherine (Anna Paquin) does the society thing in and around town while distancing herself from her two young children, both who have issues. William's black-sheep brother Scott (Ryan Phillippe) rides up on a horse with a boatload of booze and pills and turns everything topsy turvy. But, in his own way he reveals to them they may have a good lifestyle but they're far from having good lives.

I can't say there are a lot of surprises here. You see the set-up early on and you're pretty well assured where things are headed. A few things do happen that are unexpected but nothing that alters the destination. What is going on here is the acting. Luke Wilson has a natural presence in front of the camera and he's decent here as is Anna Paquin. The big surprise for me was Ryan Phillippe. I'm not a big fan of his which almost caused me to pass this one by, but, for my dollar, he was what was happening here. The way he stands, walks, his voice and his southern accent all add up to a really good character. This is shot well with some nice scenes showing the Northern Louisiana bayou area. It has decent production values for an indy film and it sports a nice musical score.

This isn't quite worth the 4 stars I gave it, mostly due to its derivative nature. But they play the cards well enough entertain their audience.

Anna Paquin unconvincingly portrays a well-off Southern Mom and wife estranged from her husband, played by Luke Wilson. While she seems the raison d'etre of the film, the love, first and true, of two brothers, the fly in the ointment lost soul of a brother played by Ryan Phillippe adding tension to the mild estrangement of the husband and wife, no character portrays a complete personality. Instead, predictable stereotypes seem to direct the plot. Anna's portrayal is brittle and bristling as though she is playing AT a person instead of IN the character. This greatly detracts from the entire film.

The bright lights are the children, mysterious and surprising, accepting of the unconventional which their parents stridently reject. The ending seems artificial, a twist to remove the unrequited love of the lost brother for the solid renewal of the Luke Wilson/Anna Paquin marriage. In total, interesting but not compelling enough to recommend to friends and family.
