It’s an ensemble comedy-drama that has its share of awkward moments, but, like the wildly dysfunctional family it portrays, it’s still a fun visit.
This is a soundly made film, downright old-fashioned in its narrative confidence and technical simplicity, unerring in its period detail and behavior.
It’s agreeable, it’s pleasant, and it’s relaxed. Real relaxed.
No question, we’re headed for a banner period in which classic reissues on Blu-ray become major audience pleasers.
