Whoever had this last scratched the crap out of it and it's no longer usable.

I loved this movie! Great story about a family facing various trials and how they pull together to make life work. Funny, sad, thought provoking.... One of the best movies I have seen in a while. Although I am past the point in my life of raising a young family, it speaks to everyone - mother, father, son, daughter, husband , wife no matter your age...

This is a gentle, enjoyable movie - one of those feel-good ones, satisfying to watch. I'm afraid my family is now going to make me use a Swear Jar.... @#$%, I hope they don't. :)

Considering Zach Braff can annoy me at times, this was a surprising movie. Even though there is little motion in the plot, the movie keeps your attention while being realistic. Cast very well (except for Josh Gad - Jack Black would have been perfect), it is Kate Hudson who steals the show here. She continues to be the "glue" in so many of her recent movies. This movie is worth checking out at your local library.

A slow, nearly tedious film with too many forced and telegraphed punch-lines. An ultimately forgettable 90 minutes especially when compared to Braff's earlier, better work ( Garden State forex ). Sadly lacks the authenticity that his other films effortlessly wore. 2.5 stars, tops.

vacillates between amateurish and spot-on wonderful. (much like real-life does) Ends up being a good way to spend an evening.

I find Zach Braff's stuff to sometimes be a bit crass, but some good points nonetheless

Being a huge fan of Garden State (also directed by Zach Braff), I went into this movie with high hopes. I typically like movies without a linear plot, but this was so scattered, it had absolutely no direction. I don't even think Zach Braff knows what he was trying to accomplish.

I loved this movie and I loved the story. I don't think it would speak to the "just do it" people of the world, but for those of us who are a bit more flakey, it hits home. :)
