Nice, charming family movie. Nice to see the different relationships between family members.

This one was absurd. It implied that being promiscuous Is "normal". In this case it was more perversed, by two couples in the same house, on the same night making the "switch". I actually gave this movie such a "high" rating of 2 because it had good cinematography and a great collection of great actors who displayed their talents admirably.

cute. light movie - somewhat obvious in the storyline, but enjoyable to watch none the less
