I bought this film on Region 1 (it is not available on Region 2 (UK) for some unknown reason) and without having seen it, purely as it starred such a great cast of actors.
Paul Rudd is, as usual, awesome, as are his co-stars. The script isn't side-achingly hilarious, what makes the film is the storyline, relationships and character development, and of course, Rudd.
Ned (Rudd) is a hippy-esque organic farmer who chooses to see the good in everyone and put his trust in people in the hope that they will rise to occasion. This often lands him in hot water and at the beginning of the film we see him arrested for selling pot and he subsequently loses his girlfriend, home, and (most importantly to him) his dog.
The movie deals with the fallout caused by Ned whilst staying with his different family members (hence the title) and his endless devotion to getting back his furry best friend.
Like I said, the humor isn't always laugh-out-loud, I would say the film is more of a
dramedy than a straight comedy, but the characters are so well written and acted, that you cannot help but be drawn into Ned's sweet, rose-tinted world and by the end of the film you find yourself truly gripped by the storyline. It also has really nice soundtrack too. I would recommend this to comedy fans and drama fans alike, and of course, fans of the awesome and massively under-rated Paul Rudd.
