Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's a meal you may feel you've eaten before, but you nonetheless walk away stuffed and happy.
Fresh: Like the meal itself, the movie's both filling and familiar.
Rotten: This valentine to the cultural diversity that defines L.A. is a second-tier Altman (or even Paul Thomas Anderson)a broad, accessible comedy that contrasts four large and dynamic families residing on the same street: Latino, black, Jewish, and Asian.
Rotten: Chadha tries to keep so many balls in the air at once, she can't generate any steam in the individual stories.
Great Holiday Movie
These was a great movie. It shows how four different cultures celebrate Thanksgiving. It shows you that everyone does the same thing on Thanksgiving, no matter if you're White, Black, Asian, Hispanic Gay or Straight. The shocker will be at the end. Four families, four different problems one Holiday, and everyone is closer than you think. Now with that said can you please sell Bride and Prejudice Gurinder's third Movie about love and marriage Indian style.
feel good, funny
Worth renting. A funny movie about families, and time honored traditions.
My mom and I watch this every year on or near Thanksgiving, it gets you into the spirit of the holidays and reminds you about family with comedy thrown in, definitely worth your time.
