Ugh, what a depressing horrible movie. Prior to this I had only seen Frank Langella in a few movies (most notably "Dave", which I love), but he can't save this movie and neither can anyone in the cast. I don't like Billy Crudup to begin with and he kind of irritated me all through this movie. Despite the movie's premise, I expected it to be touching. Instead it's dark, unfunny and just... angry. Had it only been Brian and Raymond who went on the trip to Oregon and then bonded in the process, I would have liked this movie a lot more. The only good thing about this movie was the music but unfortunately good songs don't make up for this mess. I didn't care for Christina Applegate either, who plays the mother. Her kids are as screwed up as the rest of her family. I didn't see the point of her daughter lifting up her shirt and taking a picture of her chest, but surprise surprise, it comes back to haunt her later in the movie. Now I know why this has been in my Watchlist for so long but at least it's over now. Too bad I can't get those 100 minutes back.

🌿 I dunno. Did you enjoy being a youth in Oregon?

Very good film about human development and growth in a difficult time. For those who are touchy about this subject it could provide a fresh perspective. It is also a film that looks at free will and who has the power to choose what they want.

This is not a comedy!!! It is very sad with some humorous moments. . .

Excellent film about how family reacts to a elderly man who wants to end his life. And, to do it in Oregon where its legal. How the family fights then gets it together. Lots of surprises like in most families.
