Everybody’s Fine

Minor family drama about father Frank Goode who sets out to visit each one of his adult children after they separately cancel their plans to have dinner at his house.  There’s some nuanced acting here, particularly from a uncharacteristically calm Robert De Niro, who is engaging.  Unfortunately the whole affair is just so thoroughly underwhelming.  Slight doesn’t even begin to describe the plot.  It’s surprising the story was able to attract such a high caliber cast.  A mildly charming diversion, but certainly nothing to write home about.  (I could barely summon up the energy to write this review)  Remake  of a 1990 Italian drama starring Marcello Mastroianni.

  1. Kind of a bore. The cast is great, but their characters are awful, awful.

  2. Very disappointing. I really thought I was gonna like it.
