"Stone" hits rock bottom despite great cast

Ripping off the famous "family meets the significant other" story plot, "The Family Stone" is about Meredith Morton's (Sarah Jessica Parker) attempt to win over her boyfriend's family over the Christmas holiday. Through the many tests the family throws at them, Meredith and her boyfriend, Everett (Dermot Mulroney), question whether they are made for one another.

While "The Family Stone" features a great cast anyone can appreciate, there isn't another aspect of the film to compliment the stars. The writing is poor at best as it never establishes some of the character's personalities. This winter I would recommend one to take a trip to see their own family rather than to see this family bomb.
