Day 174

movie: The Family Stone
starring: Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker
genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
format: TV EDIT

plot: A New York couple go to stay with his family for the holidays, and invite her sister along. Soon it's clear that the family would prefer he marry the younger sister and not the woman he's been dating.

This was a tv edit, and somehow, it felt like it was missing something. But then again, many times I've found that a tv edition of a movie is not only cut for time and content, but can be cut to direct what that station feels is the main plot.

what do i think i learned from this film?
The holidays are never the time to bring someone new to visit the parents.


  1. I LOVED this movie, but you're probably right about the edited for TV stuff. Good luck on your project this year. I did it last year and it was ROUGH.

  2. Alan Grimm... Thanks.
    Rough? Uh-oh, I've made it this far, but I was hoping to have more extras to talk about.
