"Why did you choose this product?"
First you must know that I've been in love with Craig T. Nelson since "Call to Glory" back in the 80's. I also adore Diane Keaton. The movie was heartfelt and had me laughing at times as well. A good reminder that life cannot be 100% planned to our liking....
ITEM#: 10213586Destined to be a Christmas classic, Thomas Bezucha's dazzling dramedy, THE FAMILY STONE, manages to be both warmhearted and sentimental while possessing a razor-sharp hilarious mean streak. The fairly conventional story centers on Sarah Jessica Parker's uptight career woman, Meredith, and her run-in with the eponymous Stone family. With her permanently pursed lips and severe bun, SJP looks and acts the anti-Carrie Bradshaw here as, armed with cell phone and business-suit collection, she gears up to meet her fiance's oddball family, a tight-knit, colorful clan who border on bohemian. Matriarch Sybil (Diane Keaton) and patriarch Kelly (Craig T. Nelson) are a loving couple whose diverse children are affectionate and respectful. When Meredith's humorless aura infects the homestead, it is mom Sybil and sister Amy (Rachel McAdams), who sense a romantic mismatch and attack her venomously, sparking a tete-a-tete-a-tete between three feisty females. While this Battle Royal is waged, dramatic subplots brew in the background, one involving the deaf and gay brother Thad's desire to adopt a child, and the other a rather devastating secret on the verge of exposure. It is in the emergence of Meredith's refreshingly calm and breezy younger sister, Julie (Claire Danes), entering the film with a dramatic fall from a bus exit, that brings all conflict to a head.

We have watched this movie on Cable so many times and everytime it is on I watch it again. It is timeless and beautiful. I ordered it because I want to be able to watch it anytime I want to. My Mom doesn't like a lot of movies because to her they are not suitable. But she laughed so hard through this one. When it is over it leaves you wanting more. If you want a movie that entertains you and makes you view your life this one does it. It just makes you feel good. We all need to laugh and this movie makes you lie back in your recliner and be entertained. You will not be disappointed.Read More
I saw this movie in the theatre and have enjoyed watching it over and over. The actors do a wonderful job. This is a movie that will make one laugh in one minute and cry the next. A great "chick" flick as my hubby would say!Read More
Family Stone is a very enjoyable movie. Diane Keaton is hilarious. I don't think Sara Jessica Parker was the perfect person for the role she played. Overall, I enjoyed the movie very much.Read More
