Who out there has a crazy family or at least a crazy family member?? I know I have the crazy gene and so do a lot of my family members!!

In People Like Us, you get to see how one family deals with a lot of craziness!!

Sam is a 20 something man who does not have much to do with his family. When he learns of his Fathers death, he doesn't even want to head to the funeral. After being convinced by his girlfriend, he travels to his Mother.

While dealing with settling his Fathers estate, he learns that his Father had a separate life and another family. Sam is sent with the task of bringing a large sum of cash to his half Sister who he has never met.

Sam goes through a lot of conflicts dealing with his new Sister and Nephew, while dealing with his Mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) as well. He learns how others have problems just like him, and no one is perfect.

Every family has secrets and some can really hurt. As I get older, and learn more and more of my families secrets, I wish I was a kid again and oblivious!!!

If you want to see a movie with a lot of heart, that you can relate to and that you need tissues for, make sure you check out People Like Us. It opens in theaters tomorrow!!

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own. I was sent to a premiere of this movie thanks to Disney**
