For a movie I never heard of(being in the theaters), this was a surprisingly decent movie. The movie basically follows four families (a Hispanic family, Vietnamese family, African-American family and a Jewish family) as they prepare Thanksgiving dinner. Overall, it is a nice family movie despite the obvious dysfunction in each family (which is pretty realistic I suppose). Among the "issues" addressed in this movie: lesbian relationships, marital infidelity, the generation gap between parents and children, single parent homes, and gun violence. The ending of the movie surprisingly ties everything together into a nice bow but you still feel at the end of the movie like, "What a wacky world we live in." Overall, the movie itself is a nice watch, worthy of an afternoon rental viewing. It's definitely not a waste of money. Among the special DVD features in this film are interviews and commentaries from cast and crew members on a WIDE VARIETY OF TOPICS. The interviews are so-so. They're not worth the price of admission, but it's an "okay" bonus. The special feature in the DVD section I really liked were the recipes for some of the delicious dishes served up in some of the families' Thanksgiving dinners. That's a great DVD bonus. Here's my rundown: Great: The recipes in the DVD special features Good: The overall movie itself (storyline, acting, etc). Okay: The DVD bonus interviews, commentaries, etc Bad: The pure dysfunction...but it's unfortunately all too true in our society... Overall, a nice effort for the cast and crew and the DVD makers. Recommended.
