SOME FAMILIES CAN SURVIVE ANYTHING. EVEN EACH OTHER.
Three generations of the Douglas clan gathered for this film that tells the story of three generations of another family, the Grombergs. It’s possible that the Douglases worked some of their own problems into the script, but it’s safe to say that the warm feelings they have for each other are well represented. They’re fun to watch, but director Fred Schepisi has delivered far stronger dramas; nothing much happens in the movie and the insights are pretty shallow. Also, it is occasionally hard to believe in the relationships.
