The Family Stone (2005)

Although 2005's Golden Globe-nominated The Family Stone has its dramatic moments, it's stuffed with humorous scenes as well. The ensemble film follows uneasy businesswoman Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker) as she joins her boyfriend Everett's (Dermot Mulroney) eccentric family for their Christmas festivities. She quickly finds that her conservative ways are at odds with the family's laid-back, free-spirited approach, and calls on her sister Julie (Claire Danes) for back-up. Blending comedy and raw emotion, the movie co-stars Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton and Luke Wilson, and contains both awkward and endearing holiday elements all viewers can connect with.

    I can relate to the BB gun and shooting your eye out. I received an air rifle
    for a Christmas present back in the early 60’s. One day i was
    in the basement shooting at the concrete walls and cans I had set up as targets.
    When I spotted a spider walking on the concrete floor I waited till it was crawling
    between my legs and without thinking pointed the rifle straight down and fired.
    Imagine my shock when instantly I felt a sharp pain between my eyes and centered
    on my nose when the BB richoted straight back. I just stood there realizing
    that if the BB had bounced an inch or 2 left or right I would have spent the
    rest of my life as a 1 eyed person entirely due to childish stupidity .
