There is something about this trailer that just isn’t right. It might be the music, the pacing or the vibe. But something is missing.
And yet, I have a feeling this could to turn out to be a nice little movie. Why? The cast is sure part of it. Check out this all-star lineup: Robert De Niro, Kate Beckinsale, Sam Rockwell and Drew Barrymore.
Directed by Kirk Jones, “Everybody’s Fine” is the story of a widowed man who sets off on a cross-country bus ride from New York to Las Vegas to reunite with each of his children.
Sure, the story seems familiar. And, yes, the movie’s name is generic.
But somehow, I just have this feeling it might not be too bad.
Anyway, have a look:

This looks like it will be a nice little charmer. I don’t know, for some reason I get an About Schmidt vibe from this trailer. It actually looks like DeNiro’s most inspired role in awhile.
Kate Beckinsale is worth it alone.
