This Is Where I Leave You

This Is Where I Leave You

 

Rated R · 103 minutes · 2014

Comedy drama, Drama
Jane Fonda, Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, and Adam Driver star in this big-screen sitcom about a dysfunctional family reuniting for a funeral. Screenwriter Jonathan Tropper (adapting his novel) defines every character with a single, overarching foible (Bateman is timid, Driver is irresponsible, etc). One by one, each of them acknowledges his or her problem, they talk it out, and by the end of the week everybody’s OK. The laughs are about as cheap as the sentimentality—I counted at least four gags involving a three-year-old and his training toilet. Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) directed.
