The first trailer for the star-studded upcoming flick "This Is Where I Leave You" has been released and it makes our family reunions seem like a walk in the park!

Jane Fonda stars as the family matriarch who forces her children--played by Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver and Corey Stoll--to join her in the tradition of sitting shivah after their father's funeral.

Hilarity, to put it mildly, ensues as the fairly distant family learns to live together in close quarters for an entire week.

Between Fonda's penchant for oversharing and her kids finding themselves all at a crossroads in their lives, the household becomes instantly chaotic.

Bateman plays the lead role of a son who is trying to balance the collapse of his family after he discovers that his wife has been cheating on him.

Fey tells him, "Starting over is complicated and you don't do complicated, Judd. You never have."

But Bateman argues, "I've been chasing this idea about a perfect life, but life is unpredictable and irrational and complicated and I want a complicated life."

"This Is Where I Leave You" also stars Dax Shepard, Connie Britton, Rose Byrne, Timothy Olyphant, Ben Schwartz and Kathryn Hahn.

The movie will hit theaters in the fall and is based on the novel by Jonathan Tropper, who also adapted his own writing for the screenplay.
