Very good acting, especially from the actress playing the mother, from the younger Culkin and from Timothy Hutton, who's outstanding. By the way, the alternate ending is included in the bonus section.

Don't believe a word on the jacket.
Nothing funny at all.
Tender? no way.

The VPL should tag jackets with the public rating.

Good acting by all, especially Emma Roberts (Eric Roberts daughter) A couple of mixed of families. Fairly good independent movie for DVD. Definitely not a comedy.

This movie starts off at a snails pace but eventually gets going pretty well. I don't think everyone will enjoy this one but if your looking for something thats both funny and sad then its worth checking out.

This movie is rather depressing, and has very little redemptive value.

Several good actors are wasted in this pointless chronicle of a teenage boy's coming of age amidst base, depressing goings-on in 1970s suburbia. The camera loves Rory Culkin almost as much as his brother Macaulay & makes him look ever so soulful, but one can never figure out why.

Good - Lymelife (2008) 95 min. The film takes a bit of time to get going but once the characters are properly introduced and fleshed out, the film takes off in terms of story and acting. It focuses on 15-year old Scott (played by Rory Culkin) who learns that his family are not exactly who he things they are. Alec Baldwin is exceptional in this film; his facial expressions say it all. Finally, disregard the reviewer's comments on the DVD case - the film is not a comedy. P.S. I've been told by a reliable source that there is an alternate ending (which I haven't seen) that would make the ending clearer...I prefer the ending exactly the way it is.
