    Saw it when it first came out and my reaction then is pretty much my reaction now: Ok dysfunctional family movie, marred by an overly talky screenplay from W.D. Richter and way too indulgent toward the actors direction by director (and, significantly, actor,) Jodie Foster. Pretty much everyone in the cast, with the honorable exception of Dylan McDermott, is guilty of hamming it up at some point in this film. Worst offenders are Anne Bancroft (no surprise there) and, uncharacteristically, Geraldine Chaplin. Every so often, though, there is an affecting scene, like the one between estranged siblings Holly Hunter and Cynthia Stevenson, and the ones between mother/daughter Bancroft and Hunter. Let's give it a B minus instead of a C plus because of the nice, suburban Baltimore in autumn location shooting. P.S. It's incredible how few Thanksgiving movies there have been in Hollywood history. I mean, aside from this one and the (much better) "Planes, Trains, And Automobiles" I can't think of any. Christmas has sure thrown a commercial blanket over this culinary holiday, huh?

    This film doesn't always work, it's very hot or miss. When it does work it is quite good though. Holly Hunter and Anne Bancroft stand out in the fine cast. It's a little bit negative but overall it's very entertaining. Interesting direction from Jodie Foster.
