I went to see the Family Stone tonight. It was quite delightful. A lot of what I didn’t expect and I think that is why it was good, cause it wasn’t predictable – ok, a little bit of it was, but it’s a Christmas movie after all.
Sarah Jessica Parker is a really good actress. I didn’t see one inch of Carrie Bradshaw in her and she made me forget she was Carrie Bradshaw or Sarah Jessica Parker and I think that is an accomplishment since she is who she is. Luke Wilson is adorable in the movie as well and I really enjoyed the chemistry of the all the characters.
Don’t go in thinking this is a feel good movie, there are a few shocking moments, but you leave a little broken up inside and a little warmer hearted too.
