We Are Family Big families are inherently closer than smaller families.There is a lot of evidence to support this claim some of it coming from television, but most coming from everyday life. Big families have a tendency to go through more colorful experiences than smaller families. We may drive each other crazy but that’s part of what brings us together.

The movie centers around a ginormous family who starts out a little rough around the edges. You see a lot of problems at first. Their quirks seem like problems that need to be fixed.
