Rob from GuysFilmQuest81 - Much more heart to it than I expected. Rose Byrne was really good in it, as was Adam Driver and Timothy Olyphant.

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine75 - This is Where I Leave You to hit that blended comedy/drama thing smack in the middle, where it should be, including a slight pallor to the coloring of the film. Each scene is entertaining without trying to be too heartrending or too hilarious.

Bryan Lienesch74 - The whole dysfunctional family dramedy has been so overdone at this point, that you really need to bring something special to make an impression. For 'This Is Where I Leave You', that something special is Tina Fey.

Sober Film Critic James Brown61 - I could go on and on talking about how the cast members give endearing, entertaining performances. However, we've got a case in which a good cast meets a bad film in This Is Where I Leave You. It is Shawn Levy's responsibility to drive this film towards a cohesive vision that can stand on its own apart from Jonathan Tropper's source material.
