Story


Alex Gromberg (Michael Douglas) is a man caught in the middle. Trying to avoid the mistakes his father made while coming to terms with the ones he's already passed on to his own sons, Alex is navigating the tricky roles of father, son, and husband.

Onscreen together for the first time in their careers, Michael Douglas and Kirk Douglas join their real-life relations (Cameron Douglas, Diana Douglas) and a talented cast (Bernadette Peters, Rory Culkin) in a story about the loving, frustrating, reassuring, insane, and ultimately inescapable bonds of family.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..The script is terrible..”
by Sarah Chauncey [Reel]
“.."It Runs in the Family" plays like an inferior clone of Fonda family weepie "On Golden Pond"..”
by Jamie Russell [BBC Films]
“..Wigutow and director Fred Schepisi set the story in a New York law firm, which bogs the movie down in liberal-minded indulgence..”
by Paul Clinton [Boxoffice Magazine]
