Remember “The Big Chill”? If you’re a fan like me, you not only remember, but you still watch it today. And have probably said: “they just don’t make movies like that anymore.”
They do now. Clea DuVall’s “The Intervention” can never take the place of, or upstage, our beloved 80’s comedy-drama, but it fits neatly on the shelf alongside it.
Written and directed by Clea DuVall, she gives today’s generation a big chill of their own, while giving us another laid back film to love.
If you watch it with critic intentions you’re only setting yourself up for disappointment, and missing out on an otherwise enjoyable film. So, do yourself a favor… go into it knowing it’s similar to “The Big Chill” and be open minded. You just might appreciate her spin on a favorite.
