| Just as expected
I think this is an enjoyable movie as long as you know what you're getting into. The main actors of Jason Bateman and Tina Fey should tip you off that this won't be troubling the scorecards at the Oscars. Jason Bateman is an enjoyable actor to watch. I concede, he plays the same sort of character each time but he brings a laugh and a smile to my face. The plot line is admittedly fairly paper thin to get all of these characters together, but there's enough laughs and contrived family moments to be a fairly decent bit of nonsense to watch. A couple of good exchanges revolving around Bateman/Fey/Fonda were very funny. All in all, just a fairly decent comedy that I enjoyed for what it was but it won't be sticking with me for years to come.
