I know that I'm probably the only one who's going to be down on "The Descendants" these days, but what the hell is Alexandre Payne doing? The moment this trailer hit, I thought to myself "This looks boring." Family in pain with humor being used as antidote rather than augmentation of tragedy. This looks too damn cheerful. I don't care if somebody ends up dying. I doubt I'll feel anything. There just doesn't look to be enough going on here.
