Jason Lair is a simple with: a normal life. But when his wife leaves him with his son to paint in Nepal; his father gets paroled from prison and his grandfather explores alternative rituals for his coming funeral, Jason may just lose his tenuous grasp on his sanity . . . and go Around the Bend. Academy Award winner Michael Caine stars as Jason's (Josh Lucas) grandfather Henry Lair. When Turner Lair (Academy Award winner Christopher Walken) suddenly arrives, released from the penitentiary, the ailing patriarch feels free to die. But before passing from this life, he requires one last task involving a family road trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Brought together by chance and forced to uncover the truth about their past, the estranged men of the Lair family embark on a surprising journey--which will be comic, dramatic and very personal.

In the end Around the Bend isn't an awful movie. It's merely forgettable.
