Movie Info

A workaholic with a fear of commitment struggles to reconcile his dysfunctional past during a trip back home to visit his ailing father in this comedy starring Jimmy Fallon. Christopher Rocket (Fallon) is a nice enough guy, but thanks to his troubled family history, he isn't much for making commitments. Just as his smoldering girlfriend Anne (Lucy Liu) begins hinting that she's ready for him to pop the big question, Christopher's self-absorbed father (Tom Arnold) suffers a major stroke. But the stroke may actually be a blessing in disguise, because once Christopher returns to Florida and begins building bridges with his free-spirited mother Jane (Sharon Stone), his priorities finally start coming into focus.

Critic Reviews for The Year of Getting to Know Us

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

An anemic grab-bag of Sundance cliches.

Top Critic

You won't want to get to know these obnoxious characters.

January 28, 2008

Director Patrick Sisam merely cherry picks his favorite moments of dysfunction and eccentricity, failing to provide any sort of reasonable argument for Christopher's zombified mental state.
