The movie is based on the true story of John Crowley and his fight to save the lives of two of his children, Megan and Patrick.

Avatar is a game-changer. People were skeptical, particularly when that first trailer hit and it looked like James Cameron had spent a quarter of a billion dollars to make Final Fantasy.

What would the holidays be without family? In Everybody’s Fine, recently widowed Frank Goode (Robert DeNiro) almost finds out when his children ditch him before a would-be gathering.

For most people, the words “marriage counseling” and “vacation” cannot coexist peacefully. But in this falls’ Couple’s Retreat the two are forced to cohabitate on the wacky vacation of four pairs of marital challenged couples. Vince Vaughn stars in this far fetched comedy that’s loaded with laughs but lacks believability and punch because of an overly sappy ending.
