Customer Review

on 7 January 2010
This film, for me, was all about the dynamics of a family. A family which clashes at times, has members which are protective of other members to the point that they keep outsiders are kept out, and also a family unit that is built on an underlying mutual love but not necessary consensus within the family. SJP plays an unusual character with an awkward presence. This awkwardness stays throughout the film, but luckily her eventual pairing with Luke Wilson works in her characters favour as his relaxed composure and attitude to life compensates for her own shortcomings. In this way, `The Family Stone' ends positively, with the family remembering the importance of family and its members as they gather yet again for another xmas the following year, but this time without the `stone' of the family; the mother. All in all an enjoyable film albeit for strange reasons. Try it for yourself; you may love it as I did :D
