    Reminded me way too much of real life . . and laughed out loud. Was thinking a TV series would work, but evidently it quickly folded.

    I think there was so much hype for that movie that it built up my expectations way too much. It just wasn't as good as I was thinking it would be.

    We just saw it the first time this weekend. I thought it was pretty good. Especially since my Greek prof made references throughout the whole semester of "every word has Greek root."

    Really enjoyed the movie, especially since so much of it is real life for our family.

    I'm American and my family is very conservative, low-key, quiet, etc. ("toast" as they say in the movie).

    My wife is Cuban and her family (which there is A LOT of them once you include the cousins, the aunts, the uncles, etc. - who are always around or so it seems) is loud, singing, dancing, and thoroughly enjoying life, including roasting a pig in the yard (but at least it's the back yard in real life).

    I am from the quiet family, though we have strains of the family nonsense.

    I love going to family affairs of big families I am not related to. Makes me laugh.

    I thought it was good, but I agree with someone else on here, my expectations were built so high for it, that it didn't meet them. But still a good movie

    My family is more like the quiet family, and I have been involved with noisy families. It is hilarious.

    I saw it and it was funny.
    if it was not for the one scene of him asking her to marrie him in bed the move world be great.

    This is why we watch moves before we let the kids see them.
