What a disappointment

This film should have been excellent! The cast is amazing and the plot not completely unworkable but yet this film lack any drive or direction. I had hope better for SJPs first big film role after Sex and the City but alas I'm holding out for the next one...

this surprised me

It was a better movie than I thought. This looked like a basic love-story-drama, but it ended up being more. Sure, it wasn't excellent, but it was better than just average. Make sure to watch it all the way through too, just so you can see what happens. You might be surprised, you might like it too.

Feels far too calculated for its own good

"We will try to welcome her back in, like a civilized family might."

It's difficult to pinpoint all of the reasons why The Family Stone is such a disenchanting flick. With an ensemble of talented performers and a promising set-up for a solid dramedy, it had the potential to be a brilliant, poignant Christmas movie. Alas, the resulting flick is a far cry from what it should have been... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- November 2015 (22 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 44min. First Viewing The Family Stone is an okay holiday movie that seems to go out of it's way to make it's characters as unlikable as possible, and make things as depressing and shrill as possible. Like most Christmas movies, I'm willing to overlook a lot of flaws if the film can, marginally, get me in the holiday spirit and this does, barely. There are enough funny moments and strong acting to make the movie mildly entertaining, but so many of them are undercut with a cringe-factor"
