    No trite, tear-jerking cliché goes undrooled in the script by director Kirk Jones.

    It's a syrupy, downbeat film.
  3. Everybody’s Fine – a movie about the lies grown children tell their parents – is, ironically, one of the most disingenuous movies to come out of Hollywood in a while.
  4. Calculatedly soppy, seasonally phony Americanized remake of Giuseppe Tornatore's 1990 "Stanno Tutti Bene."
  5. A cloyingly sentimental story that rings false in every moment.
  6. Even supremely talented actors like Melissa Leo (as a confidently sexy trucker) and Brendan Sexton III (as a train-station beggar) are stifled by all the pseudo-redemptive mush.
  7. The queasiness produced by this sentimental weepie builds into a wave of nausea during its interminable finale.
