Becky and I went to see the new movie People Like Us last week at the AMC Theater in Highlands Ranch, CO with our friends Mark & Maria. I know, I’m a little behind on movie reviews ago, but only about a week right now. I’m catching up. The Fandango website at People Like Us describes the movie as follows…
“On the day his latest deal collapses, fast-talking salesman Sam (Chris Pine) receives the news that his father has died. Sam reluctantly returns home to settle his father’s estate. In the course of carrying out the man’s last wishes, Sam discovers the existence of a 30-year-old sister named Frankie (Elizabeth Banks) whom he never knew about. As Sam and Frankie get to know each other, Sam must re-examine both his perceptions about his family and his own life choices...”
People Like Us is a great flick, plain and simple. It’s a movie with heart and a great cast of actors and characters, plus it’s based on a true story. The acting in this film is very good and it takes you on a journey into the life of a family that has struggled with relationships and being real with each other until the father dies and everyone has to come together.
I didn’t have great expectations going into this film, but it turned out to be a great drama. It’s one of those movies that is a bit of a tear jerker and will pull at your emotions, while also showing the damage that divorce, infidelity, broken relationships and addictions can cause problems for people long term. Bad decisions in life definitely have consequences, but there is the possibility for redemption and there is no excuse for not being honest and real with people, especially with your family.
We all really liked this film and thought it was Worth The Trip or a Don’t Miss It for sure. It has a great message about forgiveness and the story is very well done. If you don’t see it at the box office, you shouldn’t think twice about renting this one – it’s a very good movie.
