Writer-director Theresa Rebeck has nothing to offer this masterly cast but a paycheck for their participation in her lightweight dysfunctional-siblings family feud.
Movies that have no reason to exist seem to be opening on a weekly basis. On its way to home video, Trouble, I'm sorry to say, is one of them.
Rambles amiably toward its unsurprising conclusion with some bits of humor.
It's a film that begins as a raucous rural comedy and deftly evolves into a poignant and reflective, yet still wryly amusing, story of what becomes of a family.
Purportedly a comedy, this sophomore feature from the playwright Theresa Rebeck is so dismally unfunny that the descriptor should come with quotation marks.
An enjoyable, if slow-moving, tale of decades-long sibling conflict.
The constant bickering becomes tedious pretty quickly, and the screenplay isn't dramatically compelling enough to fill the gaps.
[T]he established tone and comedic approach of the earlier sections don't match what the movie ultimately tries to do.
With heavyweights like Huston and Pullman going at it scene-by-scene, you're drawn to their presence on camera and they give the movie some seasoning.
Despite the contemporary rural Vermont setting, Trouble's Ben and Maggie would fit in quite well on the set of a Western.
