Often seen in action-driven fare ("Star Trek," "Unstoppable"), Chris Pine does a nice job in this comedy-drama about a salesman who gets lots of surprises when his father dies. Not the least of them is the sister (Elizabeth Banks) he never knew he had.
Pine and Banks offer fine, deeply emotion-based teamwork - a "must" for this story - in a cast that also includes Michelle Pfeiffer and Olivia Wilde. DVD extras: audio commentary by Pine, Banks, Pfeiffer and writer-director Alex Kurtzman. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
