I liked it

Love Actually was also quite good.

Family Stoned.


Must say I wasn't a big fan.  Saw it while it was in theaters with my girlfriend and mom.  They cried like little girls half the movie.  I just found the partner swap to be somewhat retarded.  And dammit, they could have cast a much prettier lead actress!



I just remember the guy from "Coach" smokin' a j with Owen Wilson.

Mr. Colbert,

Excuse me, Owen Wilson was in this?  Who was the lead actress?

The 'tard behaviour despite the college professor Dad and the Connecticutt social milieu, I assumed was because this was a movie about brothers who happened to be Irish, sort of like you,but because of
Dermot Mulroney who had to be the brightest one  for either girl to have given him a tumble.  He is usually excellent at enacting social farce at anybody's wedding.

I did have a feeling that in the long run this led to "Brothers and Sisters" as a tv series, because I could not remember at first if they had the same homosexual brother routine that is passably better done in, B and S., but seriously opted for the baby adoption requirement of the originating series of something else that had excellent actors to run you through all the pitfalls that accrue purely to which social class the lovers happen to belong at the time that they meet each other and both are men. This was the only thing that stood out differentiating the three family sagas, that the gay brother is upper class  if your mom is Sally Field, middle-class if your mom is Diane Keaton, and lesser-class if your parents run a funeral parlor over part of which they live in, Six Feet Under.

Excuse me now but....
Have a trip to a grocery again for the finalizing of the project ahead in two days.

Yes, Owen Wilson was in it and Sarah Jessica Parker was the lead actress.

Not really

Parker had a lesser role.  This a rare one where she played a not so likable (for the most part) character.

More ensemble - but she was not nearly the lead.

I flipped by The Family Stone today and saw Luke Wilson on screen - perhaps it was him, not Owen, that you meant to say?

I mean, he's okay and seems nice enough, but he's no Butterscotch Stallion.

My wife makes me watch Elf every year around the holidays.  Don't get me wrong, I like the movie and all but I'm not so sure it deserves an annual showing.

I'm not much for the "dysfunctional family gets together for Christmas" movies, except for Lion in Winter.  The Plantagenets - now THAT'S dysfunction for ya.

For centuries at that, Steve!  The nastiest of families pale in comparison.

I had forgotten that Lion in Winter takes place at Christmas.

It's Christmas.  Should we hang the holly, or each other?  Imagine me doing that in my really awful Kate Hepburn imitation.

Watching O'Toole and Hepburn try to out overact each other is one of the true pleasures in cinema.  O'Toole wins, by a hair.

Trading Places had a pretty good Christmas scene in it, if a bit disgusting. It summed up Winthorpe's downfall nicely.

On a less cynical note, I always like watching Holiday Inn this time of year,

Back in those halcyon Woody and Mia days,



It was a great Thanksgiving scene (sort of) in Broadway Danny Rose, where they get stuck in the Macy's warehouse with all the floats.
