Life as a House follows the poignant, often humorous journey of one man who is diagnosed with terminal cancer, then decides to tear down his house, and begins rebuilding an old house in hopes that it will fix his relationship with his son and ex-wife.
The movie gets us to feel about the characters, their relationships, and their circumstances, and that goes a long way towards allowing us to forgive the screenplays' occasional mis-steps and wrong turns.
...the people who assembled Life as a House imagined it as a kind of American Beauty for the slightly more-literal-minded, for those who hated or felt baffled that film will likely like and apprehend this one.
