Rotten: I didn't feel like I was watching characters who were related to each other. Every scene they are in, I felt like I was watching movie stars meeting each other for the first time.

Rotten: It s a four-square set-up, but with only the barest flicker of familial friction heating the undercooked drama.

Fresh: Everybody should see Everybody's Fine. But one piece of advice: Phone home first.

Slow moving, but nice movie about a recently widowed man's attempts to get closer to his grown up children. Had quite a realistic tone to it compared to some over sentimental films of it's type, and mostly the cast are very good. Robert De Niro does an excellent job and Drew Barrymore, of course, always good to watch. Kate Beckinsale, I would have to mirror a few other comments on here, not entirely believable, but have seen worse. Not wildly exciting, and it does drag in places, but on the whole I enjoyed it and the end was even quite moving. I think some people won't like it because they prefer movies that portray the perfect family, not flawed people with real faults and problems as this one does.

I liked it at first cause it has the same plot with Ozu's Tokyo Story but.. I dunno why it just not as good as I expected.
