Within 15 minutes of beginning this film you will be overcome with the desire to press stop - go with this instinct. No rental fee is so high that you must continue slogging through this movie.
'Everyone' is centered around a Vancouver gay couple, their pending nuptials, and the onslaught of their myriad dysfunctional family members. The movie tries to take the idiosyncratic, neurotic personalities of the characters and to weave them into a cohesive storyline. Frankly, it fails miserably in the attempt.
Marchant (director) introduces one-dimensional characters by the dozen, gives them each a handful of dialogue with other bland characters, cuts away to another scene of wooden acting and dialogue, then expects the audience to take away some deep appreciation for life's problems. All the audience really takes away is a case of indigestion. 'Gosford Park' this certainly is not.
