There are skeletons aplenty cluttering up one family's closet in Alex Kurtzman's semi-autobiographical drama. A son estranged from his duplicitous father; a mother concealing personal tragedy; a secret love child ravaged by addiction; and a troubled boy raging against school bullies: these are the dysfunctional archetypes of frothy soap opera. People Like Us is an engaging yet formulaic ensemble piece, which marks the directorial debut of the Star Trek and Transformers screenwriter.
