We saw this Tuesday night. The DVD box blurbs said:
"Corporate executive Meredith Morton (Sarah Jesica Parker) is as uptight and ultra-conservative as her pin-striped designer suit. Her boyfriend Everett Stone's (Dermot Mulroney) family is as relaxed and quirky as their aging new England Colonial. So when Meredith ventures out of Manhattan to meet Everett's clan, it's no wonder her arrival is met with all the enthusiasm of a nasty Nor'easter."
The movie is described as a deliriously funny comedy that "balances heart and humor" with a "sharp comic edge!"
I don't know that I would call it deliriously funny, but it is amusing and the people and situations they find themselves in run the gamut from pathos to joy. I am sorry to report that the plot is a little predictable. Mr. kenju and I could see the eventual outcome as soon as the people were introduced into the movie. That fact didn't ruin it for us, however, as we stayed the course. I am sort of glad I didn't pay full price to see it in the theater, but a rental on a night when you have nothing better to do? Fine and dandy.
Note: the rest of the cast: Claire Danes, Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Craig T. Nelson and Luke Wilson.
