A man brings his ice-queen girlfriend home for Christmas to meet his eccentric family. Overwhelmed by the hostile reception, the girlfriend begs her sister to join her for emotional support, only to trigger more problems.
This family holiday dramedy features fine performances but awkward shifts of tone.
I can't deny the incidental pleasures of watching these talented players giving it their all, even in such a misguided project.
A feel-bad holiday film about a repellent family, with a milquetoast dad and a smug, devious harpy of a mom.
a gob of yuletide Play-Doh
It's worth two hours for those who appreciate this kind of workmanlike, low-risk drama.
This is one busy wannabe heart-tugger.
I loved it.
Some will find it touching, some will be too weary of the plot contrivances and the smug Stone family to care.
The Family Stone is a lot slyer than you might expect.
The farcical elements are much too loaded to provide any real fun, and the Stones come off more as sanctimonious, politically correct left-wing prigs than enchanting.
