I didn't like this film. The acting was good, but that wasn't the problem. Believability was. I kept thinking that a huge amount of tragedies happened in a short period of time, so how did the family make it through 30 years of smooth sailing only to have more than half of the cast die or be almost dead in a week? Or have a psychotic breakdown or a death wish? And how did the characters rebound from each tragedy to the next while forgetting the one that preceded it? The son falls in love with an HIV positive woman, though attractive, who wasn't very nice. And he fell in love instantly. How can these people be so literate, quoting serious literature, and make so many dumb mistakes. A second big problem is that no-one was really likable. Except Buck Henry's character. Great job by him btw. Aren't dying characters supposed to be likable on some level? And no-one had any sympathy for any of the soon to die. In fact, the dying people didn't express any fear. Only concern about the...
This movie states unrated. It should be rated R to warn viewers or potential buyers of the strong language and sexual content. The story seemed to have too many sub plots for my taste. The actors did a fine job with what they had. Some of the scenes could have been done more tastefully and still made the point they intended. The overuse of the one particular word made it less attractive. My mother told me many years ago when I asked why people cursed so much that they did so because they lacked a good command of the english language and knew no other way to express themselves. Some people might not agree with me but the use of crude language in movies and music these days takes away from the story or song. Try something. Put a DVD in right now that has R rated language in it and play a small part with these words in the dialogue. Stop. Think of words that would show the same intent and replay it replacing those words. Do you still get the same information intended by...
First of all I only purchased this movie because Norman Reedus was listed on Cast. Don't bother with this if that's a reason you may want to view this movie as he appears for one very short scene as an angry, immature lover. It's otherwise a good story about a man diagnosed with Cancer, and his "semi-dysfunctional" family. Even though each character type was interesting, as was their way of dealing with Cancer in the family - this movie either needed just a little more time or less characters. There are some amusing scenes, some emotional (but not tear-jerking) elements; another reason not to bother with this movie is if you want to get a feeling of how it is to deal with Cancer in the family. Not one of the better movies I've seen, especially for one that has a cast of actors I usually enjoy much more.
