Not much of a comedy as the description says but more of a drama instead. Good cast though and you will enjoy this movie if your like drama.
Good stroyline. Happens in most families.
Bit of a weepy from Robert De Niro, who performs admirably as the recently widowed but independent (sort of) father of four of the shallowest and most dishonest kids you'll find. Top cast too but we don't get much out of them, Sam Rockwell especially.
Much to like about this little movie - a great cast with something to say without being taking itself too seriously.
A real look at relationship between kids & a father who only wanted the best for his children .
A bit slow but it all comes together hope you give it a try
Mediocre. We were still waiting for the story to get interesting when it finished.
Hugely disappointing with respect to the amazing actors in this movie. Very boring movie. Very ordinary storyline.
At first I thought slow movie going no where then it had a story a good story wow makes you think of how important family is, have your tissues ready, worth watching.
Heart-felt, a little sad, but very well done.
Beautiful film - have the tissues handy. Highly recommended
i was a bit disappointed in this movie, it was a bit slow
Great movie, a bit slow to start but well worth watching - love Robert
Stellar cast, story's not bad, zero entertainment factor.
At first I thought 'Oh no, it's going to be like one of those old man films with Jack Nicholson!' - you know, that Schmit one and something about a bucket. But this is a remake of an Italian film so there's more understated reality in it than a typical Hollywood movie. De Niro's character grew on me and by the end of the film I was quite moved and found myself reflecting on my own family life.
This was a touching moving, a little slow at the beginning but shows how improtant family is. You will enjoy this movie.
Wonderful story about a man trying to reconnect with his kids. Robert Di Niro is superb. I loved it
Very light family drama for De Niro to ply his excellent trade. Like many people he realizes after his wife dies he does not really know his children she was the head of the family, he was just the provider.
He meant well but pushed his children to hard now he wants to make up for it but has to negotiate secrets and lies to rediscover them. The sons painting????????????.. is a great moment in the film. Limited roles for quality actors, that should have been developed more. The flash back to their childhood was well done. Over all a quality nights 4 star entertainment but not as good as The Notebook !
Robert DeNiro as always delivers a stella performance and this movie is no exception. The father of 4 children, discovers that his recently deceased wife was the 'one' his children talked too, and so embarks on an impromtu suprise trip to visit each of his children. A beautiful movie reflecting on how life moves on and families find it hard pressed to find time for each other to share their lives.
Easy to watch[hard to realise that this is too easy to happen to all of us], entertaining and heartwarming with a few teary moments.( if you are so inclined)
