"Everybody's Fine," is a forced emotional drama about a widow, played by robert DeNiro who goes on a cross-country journey to connect with his four children. As the movie open, he invited them to spend some time at his house. when all four turn down his invitation, he went to them. the plot of DeNiro going across the country is similiar to "Away We Go," where a couple went cross-country to visit their friend on the eve of the birth of their child. "Away We Go" is much better, "Everybody's Fine" isn't much better. DeNiro did his best, but his character is too nice. The film has a strong cast which includes Kate Beckinsale, Sam Rockwell and Drew Barrymore. What I love about Beckinsale, I love her appeal. Even in a bad movie, she comes off as better looking. The same goes for Barrymore. I wanted to recommend the film, but the emotions were forced on me. The news of the fate of the fourth child, which is hidden from DeNiro from the children needs more work. The screenplay needs a rewrite. DeNiro's character is too nice. Example: In one scene, he gives money to an homeless teen. he then tries to mug him. That scene should've been on the cutting room floor.

I was surprised by how much I liked it. Lately, De Niro has done so much comedy that it's difficult to remember how good of a dramatic actor he is.

This is a very low-key role for him, but it gives him the ability to demonstrate how easily he can become a character and make you believe in what that character is doing and how he is feeling.

The supporting cast is excellent as well. All three that play De Niro's grown children are very believable in their roles, and even though each one of them is capable of carrying scenes all on their own, they seem comfortable sharing the screen and making the movie an ensemble supporting effort.

At the end of the movie, you are left thinking about your relationships with your immediate family, and that's the entire point of the movie. It accomplished its goal and the experience was enjoyable as well.
