Millennials run into commitment issues and decide to involve their parents, scheduling a family dinner where everyone meets for the first time. The shenanigans continue as expected Because benevolent spouses have painfully awkward encounters. maybe i do Attempt an insightful discussion on the merits of marriage. Can love last after physical excitement has waned, procreation has taken place, and time has inevitably passed?
Sam (William H. Macy) is crying alone over a bucket of popcorn at the movie theater. The equally unfriendly Grace (Diane Keaton) watches him sob with interest. She sits next to Sam and strikes up a casual conversation. In a swanky hotel room, Grace’s husband Howard (Richard Gere) and Sam’s wife Monica (Susan Sarandon) lead their usual lustful and frivolous lives. Guilt overtook Howard. He decided to cut contact after four months. Vivacious and persuasive Monica, she vows to find “a way to kill him.”
Meanwhile, Sam and Monica’s son Allen (Luke Bracey) makes a terrible mistake at his friend’s wedding. He footballily intercepts the bridal bouquet heading to his longtime girlfriend Michelle (Emma Roberts), the daughter of Grace and Howard. Furious and disappointed, Michelle gives Allen her ultimatum. she wants to get married Either he is in an impending wedding or needs to break up.
Michelle and Allen retreat to their parents’ house in search of solace. Sam asks Allen to make the leap with Michelle, but Howard thinks this boy may not be the right fit for her daughter, Michelle decides it’s time for her family to meet. The doorbell rings and a shocking surprise echoes all around. Infidelity comes to light when everyone wonders if she should be with her significant other.
put the parent in the equation
Renowned writer and producer Michael Jacobs (my two dads, boy meets world) adapted “Maybe I Do” from his play. Jacobs’ feature directorial debut Home feels like an episode of his comedy stretched into his 90 minutes. Verbose characters have incredible dialogue about what’s missing in their lives. Sam hates the domineering Monica. Howard loves Grace, but he was itching to walk other waters. Michelle and Allen are almost married, but he fears formality. For Michelle and Allen to involve their parents in the equation to resolve their disagreements is unfathomable. This might make sense from afar, but how do you physically drag them into such a frenzied moment? Even with a happy pause in disbelief, I couldn’t cross that bridge.
derail a meaningful conversation
Sarandon plays Monica like a femme fatale. It’s hard to believe that Sam would stay married to such a mean person for decades, or have the warmth of being her mother. A forced setup derails meaningful conversations about lasting romance. The results are beyond doubt. If true, Sam and Monica would have divorced before meeting Howard and Grace. A silly coincidence would have more punch. It’s absurd to think that these people become total strangers when the children live together.
