    Love this movie...even though NO it does NOT try to be Friday(s)!! The family interactions are superiorly acted. Hard not to like most of these characters...deals with family rivalry....& what holds a family together!! UPLIFTING! even though of course there are REAL LIFE PROBLEMS!! Like for example Michael Beach's character stepping out n Vanessa Willaims' character....<div style="width:295px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/servlet/embed/photo/link/10563990"><img src="http://www.flixster.com/servlet/embed/photo/10563990.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">Flixster</a> - Share Movies</div></div>
