The trailers seemed funny enough and the movie is funny enough for a like. The all-star ensemble cast gathers for a monthly book club ready of ‘Fifty Shades’ and to say the least, seasoned women are not boring.

Follow my movie reviews via FB M.U.S.E. Enthusiasts:
Fans of ‘Finding Nemo’ I feel will be pleased with this film. Of course, Pixar doesn’t disappoint on the big screen with lush colors and just an absolutely beautiful screen to view especially in IMAX 3D (which I saw it in). There’s humor and sentiment and an overall Summer movie flick winner for the child at heart.

We all love seeing a good Christmas movie this time of year to make us laugh, feel nostalgic and get us in the mood for Christmas. Well this movie aims to do that but it’s not a good delivery. With such a great ensemble cast you’d expect non-stop laughs amongst the chaos and dysfunction of this family. There’s humor and lots of family issues yet it just wasn’t a good movie. Catch it at matinee price (not worth full price). I didn’t care for the narration (the narrator will be revealed at the end, lol) which reminded me of ‘A Christmas Story’ (still a true classic). ‘Love the Coopers’ will not be Holiday classic, in my opinion.

Overall this is a heartwarming story about an aging man that is bitter because the loves in his life are no longer there (his wife passed away and his son was leading a very wayward lifestyle). He finds out that he has a granddaughter and it changes his life (initially he fought it) for the better. A good feel good movie. Nice acting cameo scene with Frankie Valli. It was also good to see Rob Reiner back on the big screen (small role); he also directed and produced the film.
P.S. I think the #DuckDynasty family must know someone at the Studio etc… a few references/video about them in the movie (I do enjoy their reality show).

There’s a plethora of talent in this movie that can’t seem to keep this movie afloat. There are laughable moments and some quite raunchy yet the storyline just doesn’t blend the characters together well. The good thing is that the movie is only 90 mins. long, therefore, you won’t feel as if you wasted a lot your time. This movie may appeal more to a seasoned aged demographic. 2 1/2 stars out of 5. In theatres 4/26.
