Sam is called home to California because his father has died. He is a salesman trying to make a living, but deep in debt. His girlfriend, Hannah , played by Olivia Wilde has no idea about his finances, And, it seems Sam has kept a lot from her. They arrive late for the funeral, an upset mother, and try to settle in. Sam is asked to meet with the family attorney, and learns he has a half sister and his dad has left her $150,000 dollars. Now, the deceit begins, trying to find out who his sister, Frankie, played by Elizabeth Banks, really is. They become friends, and the deceit continues. The film has a wonderful,storyline, but it goes on far too long. Secrets prevail in this family, no one really talks to each other. Yes, we have been there, done that. Elizabeth Banks really livens up this film, she brings action and emotion. She is left out of the secrets for far too long. An intetesting film, that could have been a great film.

Elizabeth Banks and Chris Pine as well as Michelle Pfeiffer out did themselves in this film. It is more or less a "sleeper film" without much fanfare while being a terrific movie. The music is awesome as well.
Packaging is good. Durable [ in spite of what I just said jokingly above ].
I, however, am not so easily swayed by Mr. Pine's beautiful, soft, smile or his easy-going ways. I need more. I need... Elizabeth Banks. Yup, that's the ticket. But I need more than just Elizabeth Banks on the cover image. I need a plot, darn it, and this movie has a good one.
Is it a happy movie? No, not really, but it ends mostly happily. It's a good story about messed up families and messed up kids and redemption, and I thought it pulled the right heartstrings without being too maudlin.
One nit: Chris plays a character that I *think* is supposed to be a bit older than Elizabeth's... or at least roughly the same age. In reality, he's over half a decade younger. No worries - she seems about his age in the movie. Not that I care. She could be playing his mother or his granddaughter, and I'd be on board with it.
