Director: Jessie Nelson
Starring: Diane Keaton, John Goodman

Never before in the history of motion pictures, has there been such a collection of dysfunctional misfits in one family gathering at Christmas. There's a shoplifter, screaming divorcees, a spoilt kid who should have been drowned at birth, an ugly horny male teenager, a dopey husband who's jobless but doesn't want his family to know, and a lady who simply can't land the right bloke - amongst other vastly unlikable characters.

Mum and dad are the most annoying characters who have brought the entire family together for one last dinner before they too throw in their towels and become happily divorced themselves. But wouldn't you guess it, by the end of this very unremarkable film a small miracle occurs and all these oddballs transform into a wholesome and loving family.

Audiences who have seen the very misleading trailer and anticipate a family film with an abundance of humour and Christmas cheer will be bitterly disappointed, and will quickly realise they have been cheated as the flaws within the film become apparent.

Dull, uneventful and extremely slow-moving with minimal laughs, the first half of the film introduces the audience to the many complex characters and then inexplicably misses the opportunity for high-laughter in the family gathering scenes. A stellar cast including Amanda Seyfried, Marisa Tomei and Diane Keaton is wasted and couldn't save this well meaning film which ultimately delivers a universal message about the importance of family.

Seemingly a Christmas fairy tale with bothersome narration throughout, this film is needlessly deep and meaningful, only mildly humorous and overall an unsatisfying experience. Should audiences love the Coopers? I should think not!
