Love the Coopers

Director: Jessie Nelson

Starring: Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Olivia Wilde, Jake Lacy, Alan Arkin, Marisa Tomei

This should have been a Christmas Cracker with a cast to match the goodies at the best Christmas table but what starts with great promise as a family Christmas movie just peters out limply. The weak script, fragmented story lines and sterile performances with one exception, Olivia Wilde (Eleanor), combine to make a painfully predictable cinematic experience. Overlong and wanna be Love Actually, there is just not enough substance despite the rare humorous and insightful moments.
