Saw the film listed in my local theater listings and was shocked. It has a nice cast, Toni Collete, Ana Faris, David Duchovny and Kathleen Turner, but saw no marketing what so ever for it. It was sent out to die.
The Pros: Some jokes landed for me. David Duchovny was the MVP, having some of the best material with good delivery. Kathleen Turner had some moments. It gave me some laughs, and made me wonder how it would end.
The Cons: The script has some structural issues, including over reliance on happenstance, and just some weird choices and motivations. Some of the dialogue felt off as well. The camera work, annoying. There were so many shots that looked like they were done with hand held and came across as shaky when there was no need for it.
I was hoping for some hidden gem, but got a curiosity to help start my Regal November period.
Two sisters attempt to win over their terminally ill, difficult-to-please Aunt in hopes of becoming the beneficiaries of her wealthy estate, only to find the rest of their greedy family members have the same idea.
