MOVIE REVIEW: The Descendants

The Descendants
The Descendants ~ 5/5

Here's what says:
2011 R 115 minutes

When a tragic boating accident leaves his wife on life support, an affluent land baron attempts to mend his relationship with his estranged daughters. But he's also trying to decide whether to let go of some valuable family real estate.

My thoughts:
First of all, who cheats on George Clooney with the guy who played Shaggy in the Scooby Doo movies??

Okay, to be serious: I thought this movie was more of a comedy/heartfelt movie. I was wrong, it had it's funny moments, it had heartfelt moment, but it was a good drama type movie to me. His wife is in a coma, he has to turn off life support via her wishes. When he gets his oldest daughter from another island and brings her home, he finds out that his daughter argued with his wife over an affair the wife was having. He then sets out with his children and his daughter's oddball friend to find the man and give him a chance to say goodbye. Good moments, really enjoyed it!!
