2001 Certificate: 15


Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow and Luke Wilson are the once-gifted siblings whose failings as adults become all too clear when their parents (Gene Hackman and Anjelica Huston) assemble the family to make a fateful pronouncement. Combining with co-star Owen Wilson on a script brimming with mordant wit and amusing side-steps, director Wes Anderson takes a uniquely skewed look at the weight of expectation and potential unfulfilled. Of course, with Bill Murray and Danny Glover finding elbow room in an already talent-heavy cast, and he couldn't go far wrong.
