this movie does not rely on profanity, nudity, sexual innuendo or violence to make a story. Instead, it relies on actual story-telling that requires much more intellect, creativity and effort than the former list requires. I can only hope that Mr. Krasinski will continue his story-telling efforts utilizing these same principles of movie-making as here. If he does, he will be on track to be one of the greatest directors/movie-makers of all time, just you wait and see.
not have the new life coming in, after losing the big loving life that just left!)
2. I cried, drippingly, when elder son so lovingly and caressingly, shaved his mother's head. That seemed to be the
essential message of the whole movie - show care through whatever happens.
3. I laughed out loud when elder son and mom escaped from hospital before her "Last Meal" to an ice cream shop!
4. I felt shared happiness and delight the at "wedding" ceremony, and how they gave each other their betrothal rings.
5. I felt joy when the dad finally grew up at the end; he was glad, too.
I've avoided John Krazinski (sp) only seeing the "Jack Ryan" ads, which are not of interest, but am so glad to have bothered to look at what else he may have done. Perhaps he is a force for humanitarianism, caring, and compassion in stories that reflect more or less real situations, and how we can actually get through them without despair.
a dysfunctional family, a "successful" sibling, a family screw up, the father not really "there" and a mother serving as the family matriarch. The only shining moment was Josh Groban.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed all the actors, but there talents were wasted on a weak script with an all-too-common theme. Also, the movie just seemed to drag on for a lot longer than it actually is. By the time it was over, I thought over 2 hours had passed.
A very generous 3-star rating because of the cast.
