Everybody’s Fine

Everybody’s Fine is a family drama with a healthy paint of comedy that stars Robert De Niro as Frank Goode, a retiree whose wife had just recently passed away. Unfortunately for the Goode family, his wife was the mortar in their family and was the one who ended up communicating with their four children. Now that she has passed away, he attempts to bring his family together that is not as easy as it sounds.

Unable to bring his children to his home, Frank decides to go on a road trip and visit all of his children separately but to compound the situation, each of his three children (Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell) have their own “life” dilemmas. As the children go to extreme lengths in hiding their affairs from their father Frank, the theme of family is not so with the Goodes and at times, the plot is too convoluted to make any sense.

There are strong performances in the film, specifically from De Niro and Beckinsale but at the end of the day, director Kirk Jones fails to deliver a true heart wrenching experience and many of the outcomes are a little too predictable. The video and audio quality is good which is an expectation of all Disney films these days and there are a few special features thrown together such as the making of Paul McCartney's "I Want To" and some deleted scenes.

All in all, Everybody’s Fine is not a bad nor good drama experience but sits somewhere just above mediocrity.
