This Is Where I Leave You - S. Levy 2014

Adam Driver, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Patrick Bateman, Rose Byrne, Connie Britten etc = The crème de la crème of Hollywood comedy actors in a film about a family reuniting around the father's funeral.

Everything here is exactly, precisely, to the letter what you expect it to be, except for the fact that it would be fully reasonable of you to hope for something a lot more original, or at least something funnier, seeing what a talented cast this is.
(Except, of course, if you are enough of a film buff to remember Levy was also the director of equally promising, equally slightly disappointing 'Date Night'.)
