This is Where I Leave You movie review

I had wanted to see this movie when I heard it was coming out, however, like always, life got in the way and I never got a chance to…until now.  I was hoping that it would be like another Family Stone movie…or something similar…but it’s not, exactly.  If you’re expecting a good family movie, this isn’t it.  There are many adult situations and language, but in the end, the story line turned out to be pretty good.

It’s mainly about a family with four grown siblings whose father passes away and they are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week.  Not only do they have to try to get along with each other, throw in their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes, and might-have-beens.

This movie has some funny parts to it and there are quite a few big stars, but I’m not exactly sure if I’d watch it again.  LOL  I would however recommend that you watch it at least once.

  • I am almost done reading this book….can’t wait til I am done so I can see the movie. I am clearly a nerdy English teacher who refuses to watch the movie version until I have read the book version of a story. And I always like the book better, too.

    • OH wow, I had no idea that this was a book! I may have to read it!

  • So glad to read your review on this. There are lots of big names in it- I’ll have to give it a try!

    • Maybe you’ll like it better than I did? I mean, I liked it, but felt like it could be better.
