  3. Movie review: 'This is Where I Leave You' puts A-list cast in B-grade film

    That&aposs not to say the film isn&apost often enjoyable. It&aposs a pleasure to watch pros like these interact. "This is Where I Leave You," a Warner Bros. release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America "for language, sexual content and some drug use." Running time: 103 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. By JOCELYN NOVECK Associated Press Somebody dies. Family gathers to mourn. Everybody's stuck in one house, with all their quirks and foibles and enough emotional baggage to fill an aircraft carrier. What could go wrong? Ha ha. What couldn't?

And it's a shame, because the film has an A-list ensemble cast, headed by Jason Bateman and Tina Fey, but also featuring nice work from Jane Fonda, Connie Britton, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Debra Monk and more. A cast like that deserves an A-list movie; they got maybe a solid B. Bateman plays Judd Altman, a radio producer with a pretty wife and an even prettier Manhattan apartment. But he arrives home one afternoon ... FULL ARTICLE AT MassLive.com
