Evan Schafer's rating of the film Home for the Holidays

The fourth star is only given because of the father's monologue toward the end when he is sitting in the basement with Holly Hunter. For sure a touching film that gives eloquent light to the middle-class during the holiday season, but one that also lacks in certain areas, even making me disinterested a time or two. Robert Downey Jr. is a delight as always, but something is ultimately missing. Overall it's watchable.
