WHO ARE YOU?,
This review is from: People Like Us [DVD] (DVD)
There are moments in our life, decisions we must make that define who we are. Sam (Chris Pine) must face a myriad of these in a short period of time. Sam works as a corporate barterer who has gotten himself into legal and financial problems. When his father dies, Sam leaves with his wife/girlfriend? (Olivia Wilde) to reluctantly attend his dad's funeral. His mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) is cold and distant.
Sam's father was a record producer who had a daughter, Frankie (Elizabeth Banks) from another relationship. Sam finds this out from the attorney. He is instructed to give Frankie and her son (Joseph Wise) $150,000 dad had designated for them. Faced with financial problems of his own, and not knowing how to go about this, Sam is reluctant to hand over the money, but manages to work his way into their hectic lives. The bulk of the movie is consumed by us waiting for the moment of truth when Frankie finds out Sam is her half-brother.
The formula is cliche. Chris Pine was less than stellar, but the supporting cast was great. The heart warming ending is predictable. If you simply like a feel good movie with light drama and humor...and who doesn't, count this one in and don't forget the Puffs.
Parental Guide: 1 f-bomb, minor sex scene, no nudity. Minor sex talk.
