An incredible all-star cast shines in this deliriously funny comedy. Featuring Sarah Jessica Parker in a Golden-Globe nominated role, The Family Stone is a feel-good film that'll leave your reeling with laughter! Uptight and ultra-conservative corporate executive Meredith Morton (Sarah Jessica Parker) ventures out of Manhattan to meet the family of her boyfriend Everett Stone (Dermot Mulroney). But the Stones are a quirky protective group that need time to warm up to the frosty stranger. It will take a surprise guest, two shocking romances and several beers to thaw Meredith's icy exterior and melt the hearts of the Family Stone!

One of those US films where the extended family gathers for Christmas; lots of snow, they all help with the massive tree,lots of personality clashes that somehow all get solved in the end...theres the gay couple, the quirky slacker one, the uptight rich one. Perfect viewing at Christmas, but only if you suspend your disbelief and you are near the end of that first bottle of wine. The film (and the wine) will leave you with that Christmas glow.
Actually, I do it a disservice-it tries to cover all aspects of life,and does a reasonable job. Theres a subplot of one character with cancer, which is handled rather movingly(so its not all a bundle of laughs). If you liked 'Brothers and Sisters', the TV show, you'll like this....
