The Family Stone (2005)

Everett Stone (Dermot Mulroney), a successful young businessman brings his ice–queen girlfriend, Meredith Morton, home for Christmas to meet his eccentric family. Overwhelmed by the hostile reception, Meredith begs her sister, Julie (Claire Danes) to join her for emotional support, only to trigger more problems.

The cast line–up bears well–known names and faces, but I don't know what to make of it. I didn't hate it, but didn't like it either. The film somewhat mirrors Meredith's character to a certain extent – tries too hard to please others, but fail miserably.

Rating: 1.5/5.
