User Reviews

 
We are all dysfunctional

If you like movies about realistic families you should like this film. Nothing really deep. Family joins together during the stress of the potential loss of one of its members. The way they act and treat one another is so true.

It's worth the rental cost to watch Susan and the boys clean the garage.
