"Witty and wise"-Us Weekly

Katie Holmes is "terrific" (People) as the quirky black sheep of her family in this delightful comedy that "sparkles with acerbic wit, original characters and genuine heart" (Variety). Patricia Clarkson gives "a career-making performance" (Boxoffice), and "the entire cast is inspired" (Film Threat) in this "moving, hilarious comedy" (People).

Rebellious daughter April Burns (Holmes) has offered to host an elaborate Thanksgiving dinner for her suburban clan in her Lower East Side apartment. But her attempts to create an unforgettable feast go awry when she discovers that her oven doesn't work. Now, as her weary family makes its way to the city, April must rely on the kindness of strangers to pull off the perfect meal... and the perfect memory.
