I must live with really f*cked up people, because this was really realistic to me. I didn't find it exaggerated at all. Margot, especially, was a very nuanced person, and yes she had issues and was a bitch, but she wasn't a monster, I still felt for her.
I can't believe that people watch this movie and think that everyone is horrible and evil to each other. They must live in a different world than me, because none of these people were evil, they were all really nakedly human, and I identified with each character in their own way. The whole movie felt very real to me. Very true to life.
I liked it. It felt very raw and emotional... the characters were all pretty dysfunctional, especially Margot.
I'm confused as to why it's listed as a comedy on the box though, and here, I didn't find it very funny at all. It's not like Little Miss Sunshine or others where the family is messed up, but it's funny. They are messed up and it's sad and you hurt for them.
