One of Clooney's best IMHO
I was told by a friend that this was a chic flic and don't waste my time. On the contrary! This was an amazing movie with lots of reality and emotions most of us are familiar with.

Totaly unexpected.
In the end, kind of pointless, but nevertheless a great film.

A great performance by Clooney
Director Alexander Payne, who made the wonderful Sideways delivers another clever road movie, this time with Clooney as the head of a dysfunctional family trying to overcome a crisis.
