The Family Stone Reviews
It seems as though this was adaptedfrom two scripts that were put togehter. One being a Holiday time cancer drama, and another being a "Meet the Parents" type comedy. Neither of which hits the notes it must in any genuine way.
this swap partner thing between sisters (or brothers) is an arrant nonsense!! but i liked the whole family atmosphere and of course the cast was awesome. i'm a pro meredith even if this dinner scene was truly dreadful. and is diane keaton now always wearing turtleneck? (around 2008, 4 stars)
