Last weekend, Magnum and I watched Everybody's Fine. We thought it was bad.
Later, I read a few reviews and it seems that people either loved it or hated it, no grey area. To me, it was depressing, boring, and just took itself too seriously. I didn't like any of the characters. Lying was too easy for all of them. And some of the writing and directing was a bit ridiculous.
Robert Dinero plays a widower who goes to visit each of his 4 children after they stand him up for a weekend at "home". We're forced to travel with him to these visits, which feature much lying and awkwardness from everyone.
The dad character lived too much in the past and just wanted to look at things through rose colored glasses. The first daughter lied too easily and/or just swept bad things under the rug. The son lied too easily and had a chip on his shoulder, the third daughter was sweet enough but lied too easily. Two thumbs down.
I'd heard this was advertised as a comedy. What? Glad I wasn't expecting that, since it's depressing and boring. Maybe if they'd changed the title to "Everybody's Lyin'", I would've known better what to expect.
Just my humble opinion.
