This Is Where I Leave You Review


A sparky ensemble helps make this film entertaining even if the plot is simplistic and the themes very tame for a movie that is trying so hard to be anarchic. August: Osage County this isn't! Instead, it blends warm comedy, silly slapstick and a heavy dose of sentiment to tell a story that's engaging but never remotely surprising. But the terrific cast makes it well worth a look.

It opens as Judd (Jason Bateman) sees his life go from bad to worse: he catches his wife (Abigail Spencer) in bed with his boss (Dax Shepard), then learns that his father has died. Back home for the funeral, his mother (Jane Fonda) announces that she wants Judd to sit shiva, seven days of mourning, with his three estranged siblings: frazzled housewife Wendy (Tina Fey), frustrated Paul (Corey Stoll) and party boy Phillip (Adam Driver). Everyone in this family is dealing with relationship issues, so they all get involved in each others' lives again, even though none of them likes to talk about these things (except their hilariously over-sharing mother). So as Judd and Wendy reconnect with old flames (Rose Byrne and Timothy Olyphant, respectively), Paul and Phillip have to clarify things with their partners (Kathryn Hahn and Connie Britton).

Each of the various subplots touches on a big issue, although Jonathan Tropper's script never digs too deeply, relying on superficial comedy and simplistic emotion rather than anything too provocative. This is an odd approach for a film that is essentially trying to say that life is messy. Even the funeral and grieving are used more for laughs than emotion, as are old rivalries and perceived betrayals. Much of the brawling, insulting and teasing is genuinely funny, but only because the cast members have so much fun with it all. Bateman offers his usual likeable everyman, generating terrific chemistry with Fey, Stoll and Driver, as well as some jagged wit in his scenes with the always superb Byrne. And Fonda steals the show as an unapologetic woman who says the wrong thing at just the right time.

"Justified's" Season 5 Premiere "Murder of Crowes" Low On Action, But Packed With Revelations

Tags: Timothy Olyphant - Natalie Zea

Last night saw the fifth season premiere of FX’s Justified. The cult show hasn’t had such a wide reception as some of FX’s other productions, but in the premiere, as with most of the previous four seasons, the writing remains as solid as ever. The first episode was mostly setting up for the new stories about to unfold – one of the most beloved aspects of the writing is that often, big events have already happened on screen, leaving viewers to get to grips with the new situation, while they wait for the action to begin.

Timothy Olyphant returns as Raylan Givens - now with less grime.

This was the case in last night’s episode - both Raylan and Boyd are without the women they love, as Winona is raising Raylan’s daughter in Florida, while Eva sits in jail waiting for some (illegal) miracle to get her out.
