Sadly, reviews weren’t particularly strong for the movie when it debuted nine years ago in theaters. The Wrap’s review of the movie was particularly scathing, concluding:
“Occasionally, Hollywood will step forward with a family drama that actually manages to tinker with actual pain… “This Is Where I Leave You” has no edge, no darkness, no texture, no character to speak of.”

Genre: Animation, Kids
Director: Cédric Dietsch, Renaud Martin
Runtime: 22 mins
