Everybody's Fine is unavoidably sentimental. Writer/director Kirk Jones is not ashamed to tug at the heartstrings but he also invests the film with enough truth and insight to elevate it beyond a crass weepy.
Mushier than a half-chewed rusk. And while that doesn't necessarily make it a bad movie, it DOES make it a syrupy one - with enough hugging and learning to triple your cholesterol during the 100-minute run-time.
Not a reinvention of the wheel, but this sensitively told remake of Giuseppe Tornatore's same-named 1991 Italian film slots in respectably as the holiday season's obligatory commercial drama of familial reconciliation.
