Reviews
Mine: A touching sad and sweet movie. Depp and DiCaprio are great here. The story is facinating and never predictable. A facinating study of an unusual family. Highly recommended.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Gilbert has to care for his brother Arnie and his obese mother, which gets in the way when love walks into his life.
