The intervention of Tony Soprano, who lives not far away, is urgently called for.

The leafy green trees evident everywhere in what purports to be New Jersey Christmas scenes aren't the only thing that feels off in the predictable domestic bedroom comedy The Oranges.

You want something that plays a little sharper, and cuts a little deeper. You want something that demands more of its performers, and delivers more to its audience.

You know the movie has an insurmountable problem when the two adulterers, who profess to be madly in love, don't even seem like they want to be in the same room.

As a seven-year veteran of the New Jersey suburban experience, I can testify that it nails the milieu's specifics.

Its concerns are not the usual movie concerns, and it takes what might have been a standard plot in some unexpected directions.

"The Oranges" is a watered-down dramedy with little sense of place - or human behavior.

How could a movie starring Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt, Allison Janney and Catherine Keener go so wrong?

What I liked was the movie's feel for the emotional mess and ambivalence of family ties, and its openness without hysteria to the fact that some of those ties might fray beyond repair.

When it's funny, it's laugh-out-loud funny, yet when the situation calls for groans of vicarious embarrassment, it provides them in spades.

Laurie and Meester are both likable actors, and a good thing; otherwise the audience reaction would probably be something similar to that of their families.

"The Oranges" is a pleasant little farce that never works up enough steam and that undercuts its players with thin writing and characterizations.

Kind of like a takedown of the suburbs written by the people who designed the menu at Olive Garden: It's inoffensive, forgettable, and you don't actually have to chew anything.

Plays out like a bizarro rom-com, the music and tone indicating we should be cheering on a new couple while our sense of personal appropriateness nags at our rah-rah emotions.
