a very difficult topic about people protecting the ones they love, for all sorts of reasons. when the fog clears, perhaps it would have been better to be forthright in the first place. based on a true story. I was quite interested in Chris Pine stepping out of his usual role and trying something a little different. I was not disappointed. a troubled 30 something finally confronting his ghosts and accepting the reality of his relationship with his father, who has passed away. Good thoughtful movie. Good movie there are flaws in the characters and you can love them or hate them at different times.

Semi-sweet film, I'm not the only one who found some of the characters annoying, but I feel the ending made up for this. Families are so complicated.

You might like it or not. All depends on how you see yourself or others in your family. Some people are like this.

LOVED it. An unexpected pleasure of a film. Don't expect to like or even understand all the characters, but be prepared to be interested. Life takes on texture and depth when people try to see through others' eyes. So do films. This is a modern story about making a living and having a family....or not.

Overall, I like the idea of this movie, but the way it was portrayed was a little off. First off, I'm not sure why so much detail was shared about Sam's career, as that issue was never resolved. Secondly, there was a really strange sexual undertone between Sam and his sister. Also, the sister was really irritating when she found out that Sam was her brother.

People Like Us was inspired by true events and is completely plausible. A father of two children (a son and a daughter) with different mothers was forced to choose one family over the other. Upon his death the father had saved $150,000 with written instructions for his son to give the money to the daughter that the father had abandoned. Previously unknown to each other the movie then focuses on the son meeting his step sister and nephew. Although the characters are not particularly likeable the movie has a heartwarming and enjoyable ending.

The ending made me cry, the rest was iffy, did not like that she didn't know who he was, didn't like his mom, or his girlfriend, or him really either.

I really liked this movie. I thought the characters were typical and their actions highly predictable but the there is something near the end that changes this movie around for me. I won't easily forget it and that's why I liked it.

Memo to self: never believe people reviewing on library website who say movies are "touching" "awesome" and "heartwarming". Rather believe people who say movies are "mediocre" and "cringe-worthy". This was a totally portentous piece of carp. Don't waste your time.

Not a good film. A tale about a not so nice guy meeting his all to desperate sister and her son in an underhanded and manipulative way. I stopped watching it after the sceen where it seems like she is getting romantically interested in him while not knowing the true nature of their relationship. I could not envision a good middle or ending to this totally unrealistic bore.
