Consensus: Despite earnest performances, Welcome to the Rileys cannot escape its belabored over-sentimentality and sluggish delivery.

Welcome to the Rileys is a reminder that good, or at least intriguing, things can come in what seem to be predictable packages.

Terrific acting by James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo -- and a noble effort from Kristen Stewart -- goes a long way toward salvaging it.

I love these kind of movies. It's about people drifting apart and coming together again. Don't expect an original movie, just enjoy.
