Reviews

Jodie Foster directs this comedy centring around a family get-together. As she returns to the bosom of her family for Thanksgiving, single mother Claudia (Holly Hunter) has several problems on her plate - her 15-year-old daughter Kitt is planning to lose her virginity, and Claudia has just lost her job. Her family do little to help; she must cope with her eccentric father, overworked mother, loopy aunt, prankster brother Tommy and ultra-conservative sister, Joanne.

A great cast, a well written story and a great director in Jodie Foster. All the ingredients of a fantastic D.V.D. Holly Hunter plays the role of a woman who comes home to her slightly crazy family for Thanksgiving and the interaction between the various family members, provides some great comedy, highlights the relationships within the family and brings some issues to the surface. The family are in fact typical of most real life situations, I said slightly crazy, but no more than most. It's a great film, well worth seeing if you have never done so.

A great cast, a very good script playing with an average american family and its disfunctional members. I love this movie, even if as many UK made DVDs there are no english subtitles (in this case there are no subtitles at all). So it is difficult for us non mother tongue to follow all the dialogue. With the subtitles I would have added the fifth star. But still I am happy to have bought it.

I know this is an often used reviewer's cliché, but this film is one of those lovely overlooked cinematic gems that deserve much more recognition. The ensemble cast are all uniformly excellent. Holly Hunter has never been more appealing, radiant or sexy as the gentle eye of this thanksgiving family storm. If you have a large complex typical family I'm sure you will find many lovely similar details and quirks in sympathy with your own. Jodie Foster directs with a genuine warmth and positivism for her subjects. This film is a joyous and life affirming journey about modern life and relationships.

I honestly didnt know about this film....being somewhat of a film nut !
I saw part of it by chance when I turned on the MGM channel. A film about true family life when they ONLY seem to get together for the holidays !
Finding out things they never knew...and bringing up OLD ghosts !!

This has just been re-released. You could only get US Copies until recently so beware.
So surprised it never took off in the UK. Very Funny.

No need to write about the plot, I guess. The movie is heartwarming, funny and the characters are lovely crazy.
