This is Where I Leave You

We all have those family members that are a “little” dysfunctional or maybe the whole family is!  If you can relate to that – you will relate to this movie.  This is Where I Leave You is a film about the family that you love but can drive you up a wall within 5 seconds of being back together.  Having to spend a whole week together mourning the loss of their dad, 3 brothers, 1 sister and an over-sharing mom learn far more about each other than they really want to.  A great ensemble of actors from Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Timothy Olyphant to Jane Fonda allow for each characters’ charms and quirks come to life in this film. Jason Bateman by far was the most enjoyable character to watch and a different role for Tina Fey which I thoroughly enjoyed.  You get to see a new side of Jane Fonda in this movie and the other cast members all added to the merriment.  I enjoyed this film for the craziness of the family life and the moments when you feel like no one has your back and then you realize your family was always there.  Not a sappy movie but one that was entertaining in a reality type way.
