      Critics Consensus

      A calm, charismatic performance from Robert De Niro nearly saves the movie, but ultimately, Everybody's Fine has the look and feel of a stereotypical Christmas dramedy. Read critic reviews

        Maybe it's poorly marketed or even falsely marketed as another family comedy, what ever the reasons are, one thing is for sure, I enjoyed watching Everybody's fine. The movie is well-executed and well-written too. Robert De Niro's character as a widower who wants to start to get to know his four children is portrayed perfectly and at times, hit too close to home. I don't understand why the critics said the movie has plot holes or unresolved story; maybe just maybe, not all movie should follow the Hollywood standard of rules and regulations, no? 8/10.

        I just watched it, Monday and I was quite moved. A terrific performance by Robert DeNiro as the man who sets out to reconnect to his children when they fail to converge for the family reunion he had planned at the house. Watching him get shuffled from one home to the next, all the while acting like he didn't know they were lying to him was heartbreaking to watch. And yet, behind it all, you knew that they all loved him and just wanted to protect him from the truth about their lives that they feared would disappoint him. Maybe it's because I am at that stage of life where one begins to look back and evaluate the wasted opportunities and the relationships that have withered and in some cases died that I connected so viscerally to this, but I was enthralled.

        Amy: I tell you the good news and spare you the bad. Isn't that what mom used to do for you when we were kids?  "Frank's traveling light, but carrying excess baggage." Everybody's Fine is a small, heartfelt, and overall decent film. It has a wonderful cast including legendary Robert De Niro, plus a supporting cast with Sam Rockwell, Drew Barrymore, and the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale. This is a good role for an older De Niro. He no longer fits the Travis Bickel like characters. He is now more suited for this type of a role. He plays a grieving father who has just lost his wife. His four kids all cancel their trip to see him, so he decides to take a cross country trip and see all of them. In the background, three of the kids are keeping a secret about the fourth from their father.  I liked Everybody's Fine, but I'm not gonna blow sunshine up its ass. It is by no means a terrific movie. It's predictable filmmaking. I called just about everything that happened in the movie fifteen minutes before it happened. But oh well; the point wasn't to surprise me. I enjoyed the movie for it's honesty when examining the life of a family. A lot of the subjects the movie brings up regarding family will hit home with just about every viewer. We always, as kids, had one parent we could talk to. The other was kind of left out of the loop because either they couldn't take what was actually going on, or they would over react. Frank is the parent who was always left out of the loop. His kids, after the passing of their mother, still don't tell him the bad things because he is a worrier.   There's really not too much to say about Everybody's Fine, except that it was fine. There's nothing too spectacular going on here, but I ended up finding it engaging and emotional. I don't think it laid on the tearjerking too thick either, which was much appreciated. It's just a decent little film in its own right. I'd suggest it, but I also wouldn't tell you that it is vital that you watch it. If you come across it one day in the future, give it a look. If not, you'll live. Still I don't know if you could find a movie where Kate Beckinsale looks hotter. She looks absolutely stunning in Everybody's Fine.

        This movie has an all star cast, a interesting plot, and good acting. So whats with it, the movie is too dramatic, it didn't keep my attention, and it was not a very good movie.
