I became poised to strike ” The Family rock” because its tale of a family group of misfits is not any match for the brilliance of “Junebug.” I happened to be all worked up to bemoan the way in which a vacation launch with stars like Claire Danes, Diane Keaton, Dermot Mulroney and Luke Wilson gets a huge marketing sendoff, while an excellent movie like “Junebug,” committed and truthful, is shuffled down into “art movie” purgatory.
