An average movie

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Marisa Tomei and since this movie was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be even weaker than I expected. Indeed, not only the concept was just really weak and generic but, to make things worse, all the characters were rather annoying. Seriously, the parents, the grandparents and the children were just rather cringe-inducing to behold. I mean, if the whole thing would have been actually realistic and the fact that I'm myself a parent made it even harder to swallow. It's really one of these case when they tackled an interesting subject, something I could definitely relate to (indeed, my  parents live really far away and see my kids only a couple of times every year), but chose a completely wrong approach. Indeed, with a slightly darker tone, it could have been interesting but, instead, they just went for the cheap laughs and jokes. At least, it became slightly better during the 3rd act but it was just too late. To conclude, I was probably generous with my rating here, it was just a really weak comedy and I  don't think it is really worth a look.
