Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really wanted to like this film but sadly I cannot say if it is worth purchasing. I have purchased many films on Amazon and never had a problem with them playing, I did this one. Amazon needs to rethink the return policy on bad transferred disks. It skipped through all of it.
On what I did see (which was like watching TV with commercial breaks) was very slow. I did not see much humor except the cat and fire episode with Blunt at the home that Ms Blunt was cleaning alone. I truly like Emily Blunt and her ability to make tragical situations seem comical. Amy Adams was so concerned about what others thought of her that I did not like her. If that is what they were going for it was done brilliantly. Alan Arkin had very little in this film, except he helped pull off the dysfunctional relationship that this and many (all) families have. It had cute moments. I see why it was not at the theaters long before DVD release.
My suggestion is go rent this one first then you'll know if it is worth the money to buy.
