Love The Coopers follows The Cooper clan as four generations of extended family come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration. As the evening unfolds, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down, leading them all toward a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday.
I have a real soft spot for holiday themed movies. Especially movies that are centered around functional, and even better, dysfunctional families. They suck me right in. I just love them! New this holiday season, Love the Coopers just so happens to be one of those movies. I recently attended an advanced screening of Love the Coopers, and am looking forward to sharing my review soon.
Check out the trailer for Love the Coopers staring Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Diane Keaton, Jake Lacy, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, June Squibb, Marisa Tomei, Olivia Wilde below.
Every time I see the above trailer it makes me think back to hosting our first Christmas in our first house. Our dinning room chairs were not delivered on-time, so we ate on folding chairs and lawn chairs. That was a sight! As was my first holiday meal for ten plus guests. I think I served two kinds of dishes, raw in the middle or burnt. I even found the dinner rolls sitting in the oven the next morning. Never baked, and never served. Even though I felt the stress of not much going right on that day, I still think back to it as one of my favorites. Though we made for a crazy bunch, we were together as a family. That’s all that mattered.
Have you ever tried hosting the perfect holiday? Do you think that is even possible?
