People Like Us wasn't made for me. If it was made for you, you'll probably like it, if you don't spend the entire running time waiting for two siblings to make out.

An affectionate drama marked and buoyed by engaging performances. The movie's apex of catharsis is a genuinely nice payoff, but the home stretch it takes to get there bends a bit too much toward convenience.

Examines the costs of broken, fatherless relationships in subtle but direct ways. Yet it is not a downer of a movie, nor is it superficially cheery. A great cast helps.

Alex Kurtzman, in his directorial debut, delivers a compelling and emotional dramedy about a man who discovers he has a sister he knew nothing about.

Both improbable and dull.

There's absolutely no reason why anyone should like a formulaic story like this, except for that mysterious thing called "chemistry." It works perfectly.

Finally a movie with a realistic or at least possible plot, and Pfeiffer and Banks show their talent.

The formidable talent of the cast believably turns the contrivance-navigating characters into (yes) people like us.

It's a pic that could have been real bad if the actors didn't give it a heart and a measure of sincerity.

Best of all is Elizabeth Banks ... Come to think of it, Banks is frequently the best thing about any movie in which she appears -- tell me again why she isn't a huge star?

It seems ridiculous to dance around plot details when the movie allows the audience to get ahead of the story and to stay there as events laboriously unfold.

Everybody gets angry at each other because no one talks or uses reason.

This cinematic gem is the perfect counter-programming to the typical noisy summer blockbusters. It grabs you by the heartstrings and elicits a deeply felt emotional pull. The ending will leave you in tears.

Would I be out of line assuming this soap opera is going to end with a lot of big hugs?
