This laboured families-in-strife comedy drama doesn't merit the calibre of its stellar line-up. Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener, Oliver Platt and Allison Janney play best friends and neighbours in a well-to-do New Jersey suburb. They hope that Laurie and Keener's son (Adam Brody) will fall for Platt and Janney's daughter (Leighton Meester) when she comes home for Thanksgiving after a five-year absence. Instead, she begins an affair with Laurie, causing turmoil and threatening marriages, but there is a suggestion that these complacent, middle-aged people needed their lives shaken up. It's all mildly amusing, if fairly obvious, stuff and it's impeccably played by the superb cast. But you can't help feeling that they all deserve something rather more worthy of their talents.
A rebellious young woman returns home to her family after breaking up with her fiance, and has an affair with her parents' middle-aged married neighbour, who is also the father of her childhood best friend. The discovery of the fling throws the relationship between both families into chaos. Comedy drama, starring Hugh Laurie, Leighton Meester, Catherine Keener and Allison Janney.
