This Is Where I Leave You features a pretty huge cast. Put together Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, and Corey Stoll in a comedy film about dysfunctional siblings reuniting when their father dies and you get, well, a comedy film about dysfunctional siblings reuniting when their father dies.

Let's do a sibling character check.

1. The protagonist who hits a stroke of bad luck (his wife cheated on him), only to have it open another door to true love? Jason Bateman.
2. The responsible adult and mother? Tina Fey.
3. The quiet work-nerd? An unblinking Corey Stoll.
4. The baby of the family and troubled playboy? Adam Driver, double check.

There seems to be nothing startlingly unpredictable about where the plot will go, but it's hard not to love the casting. The sassy Jane Fonda stars as the four's mother, with Rose Byrne, Timothy Olyphant, Dax Shepard, and Kathryn Hahn in supporting roles. Is this an ensemble or what?

The Shawn Levy-helmed film is based on Jonathan Tropper's book of the same name. Jonathan also wrote the film's screenplay. This Is Where I Leave You is slated for a 12 September 2014 US release.
