Perhaps I'll get into the habit of posting movie reviews based on comments from my family . . .
Last night, we watched The Family Stone, another holiday family get-together movie. In general, I enjoy this genre of movie because they show the quirks, embarrassments, and fights that are inherent in most families, but they also show the love that inextricably binds them together.
This is my mother's one-line review of The Family Stone:
I didn't like the beginning when they were all being mean, but it got better when they started fighting.
So, there you have it. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has surely been waiting for my mom's review of this one.
