Home for the Holidays: In a span of 36 hours, Claudia Larson (Holly Hunter) has managed to lose her job, make out with her boss and learn that her daughter (Claire Danes) is planning to go all the way. But Claudia's fortunes actually take a turn for the worse when she flies home to endure an even more grueling trial: the family Thanksgiving! Beset by a neurotic mother (Anne Bancroft), kooky father (Charles Durning), eccentric brother (Robert Downey, Jr.) and compulsively "normal" sister (Cynthia Stevenson), Claudia struggles to maintain her calm - and soon manages to recapture the zaniness of her childhood and discover that the most important things in life are the memories she shares with family...and for that, she can only be thankful!
The Family Stone: An incredible all-star cast shines in this deliriously funny comedy that "balances heart and humor" (Houston Chronicle) with a "sharp comic edge" (Rolling Stone). The Family Stone is "engaging, enticing [and] first-rate" (Los Angeles Times). Corporate executive Meredith Morton (Sarah Jessica Parker) is uptight and ultra-conservative. Her boyfriend Everett Stone's (Dermot Mulroney) family is relaxed and quirky. So when Meredith ventures out of Manhattan to meet Everett's clan, her arrival is met with all the enthusiasm of a nasty Nor'easter. But one surprise guest, two shocking romances and several beers later, Meredith's icy exterior begins to thaw...and she may just melt the hearts of the Family Stone!
