A comic story about the annual holiday gathering of a New England family, the Stones. The eldest son brings his girlfriend home to meet his parents, brothers and sisters. The bohemian Stones greet their visitor -- a high-powered, controlling New Yorker -- with a mix of awkwardness, confusion and hostility.

Before the holiday is over, relationships will unravel while new ones are formed, secrets will be revealed, and the family Stone will come together through its extraordinary capacity for love.

  • 5 stars "simply awesome. if you don't like this movie you are more then likely broken on the inside!!"
  • 1 star "It felt like a made for TV movie. I was expecting a lot better."
  • 1 star "Possibly the worst movie I've ever seen. Imagine spending two hours with the most annoying and irritating people you know and you have a sense of what this insipid and contrived garbage is like. It should be banned under the Geneva Conventions against torture."
