You Can Count on Me (2000)
I was one of two human beings in the world who did not like this movie. Mainly I was bored. I think it starts with these two kids finding out that their parents died in a car crash, and then, decades later, Mark Ruffalo comes to hang out with Laura Linney and bonds with her kids—but their relationship is strained, these siblings, and there are laughs and there are tears and ultimately they realize how important they are to each other. Probably he's an alcoholic. Yawn.
