"People Like Us" Movie Review

Here's the Synopsis from
"While settling his recently deceased father's estate, a salesman discovers he has a sister whom he never knew about, leading both siblings to re-examine their perceptions about family and life choices."

The acting in this movie is incredible. The end.

Seriously, other than that, it was a waste of time. The general storyline is good, but executed very poorly. There's a decent amount of swearing and use of both God's name and Christ's name in vain, right from the beginning. The kid is adorable and does a great job, but even he drops the F word. It was occasionally slightly funny but otherwise just a tense drama. It pulls you into thinking there's romance, but then you remember - oh yeah, they're brother & sister. Ew.

It was disappointing, and despite that there were some good elements, the poor execution of the storyline ultimately kills this movie.
