Synopsis: A 16-year-old girl takes her parents hostage after they miss her big jump-roping competition.
Release Date: March 29, 2013
Thoughts: Yeow! I’m all for family togetherness but this one looks absolutely dreadful. While I’m not the biggest fan of Kristen Chenoweth, I do think she possesses a certain charm that Hollywood hasn’t quite found a way to work with yet. She’s struggled in both television and film, stuck in stereotypical roles that don’t suit her very well. Being teamed with Matthew Modine makes for a strange combo – but the strangest thing of all is why anyone would want to see such a lame looking film. Destined for the $5 bin at WalMart, Family Weekend will probably last that long in its theatrical release.
