The film may discover preferred gathering on gadgets over in theaters, its main oddity being the onscreen matching of genuine mother and girl Connie Stevens and Joely Fisher.
Fisher plays recently separated craftsmanship columnist Judy, a non-cook who’s resolved to setting up her first conventional Thanksgiving feast, working from formulas bookmarked on her telephone. The sudden loss of cell gathering in her rural neighborhood tosses a torque into the supper planning (does nobody have a tablet?), and tosses the vast majority of her visitors into a tiff.
More persuading than the planned comic turmoil is the science among Fisher, Daphne Zuniga and Rick Slavin (his jumpy execution is the film’s exclusive influencing one) as kin. Stevens gives a sincere sweetness as their GPS-tested mother, while Judy’s girls (Grace Folsom, Nicole Cummins) carefully remain out of the shred, swinging to such antediluvian entertainments as books and prepackaged games.
