So much wasted potential. I should have known that when in the opening credits, the theme song title is an F word (and is repeated over and over and over) and is accompanied by nudity that I was going to hate this, but something possessed me to keep watching. I like Dermot Mulroney but even that wasn't nearly enough. The Family Tree is nothing at all like the description except for the wife being left with a case of mild amnesia. It does have some funny moments, but mostly this movie is a lot of sexual humor and situations, swearing, nudity and did I mention, horrible? I saw and felt absolutely no heartwarming attributes at all and the more I watched, the worse it became. I almost turned it off, but by that time I was about 75% finished and figured that i might as well waste the rest of my time by finishing it. Ugh... It's too bad really because I was on a roll watching movies that I expected to be bad but turned out to be good. This one isn't bad, actually. Bad would have been a major improvement.

Worth watching and easy to sit through. I rather enjoyed this film. Don't be put off by the lukewarm reception of other viewers.

My experience was the same as Debra's (see below). It was ...O.K.

odd little movie - it had some unusual parts & funny moments. Not what was expected, but I was't expecting much to begin with
