When their father passes away, four grown siblings (Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Corey Stoll), bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother (Jane Fonda) and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide-- driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

This Is Where I Leave You Wiki
It seems this movie got some negative reviews. I found it funny and actually pretty interesting. Was it the best movie? No. But it killed some time and I am glad I watched it. As someone who must find meaning in almost everything I do, I did find meaning in this movie. If this makes you decide to watch it I laughed and I cried. Although crying for me is fairly easy.
I cannot fathom the idea that any person (other than those severely lacking in senses of humor) could not fall madly in love with this movie. An unparalleled definition of a true “dramedy.” The humor and poignancy were weaved together exquisitely. The cast is absolutely, outrageously talented. I genuinely cannot fathom how one could possibly dislike this film.
A lot of heart, screw ups, and quirks. Basically put, the right amount of everything with great attention to casting which brought a very relatable quality to the characters.
A must watch over and over again!
For whatever reason, while I watched this movie, all I could think of is my family gatherings at Thanksgiving. Just all the craziness and personality conflicts with the sub current of family love. Couple that with a recent death in the family and it fits like a glove. Very very very much worth a rental. As for a purchase, I’ll wait until the price comes down. Then I’ll buy it for sure.
So many movies out there are too perfect. with "This is Where I Leave You" it shows how life really is. Great movie for any occasion.
I fast forwarded through the whole thing. Completely bored
This is were i stop you the best title for this film because people would just stop the movie in a split second
Loved all the actors in it, Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda, Adam, Correy, Connie, etc, they all had great moments. I laughed, shed a couple of tears, ha! But I really had a good time watching the film,
