The Royal Tenenbaums 
The Royal Tenenbaums review
4/4 stars

The story of the Tenenbaum family: Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) a lawyer who was cold to his children and did not provide adequate love; Etheline Tenenbaum (Anjelica Huston) the wife who discovers love with her accountant; Margot Tenenbaum (Gwyneth Paltrow) is the promiscuous adopted daughter married to Raleigh St. Clair (Bill Murray), a neurologist; the financial genius Chas Tenenbaum (Ben Stiller) sued and had his father disbarred and Richie Tenenbaum (Luke Wilson) the tennis wunderkind. Henry Sherman (Danny Glover) falls for Etheline and exposes the real intent of Royal. The author and family friend Eli Cash (Owen Wilson) had an affair with Margot and has a drug addiction.

Script was impressive with engmatic lines: Royal – “Look, I know I'm gonna be the bad guy on this one. But I just wanna say the last six days have been the best six days of probably my whole life.” Henry – “Hmm... Is that a Tic-Tac?” Subjects of respect, family, morality, regret, redemption, change, love, expectations, peer pressure and loyalty were delved into this dark comedy. Its score and camera angles were superbly utilized. Amazing performances all around and the script so realistic that it could happen to any family. The Royal Tenenbaum’s genius lies on the screenplay and its intent to bring in a few laugh out loud/dramatic moments.
