If you had polled a random sampling of movie nerds in 1993 and asked them to name the best living male and female American actors, I'm willing to bet the winners would have been Robert DeNiro and Meryl Streep. Fifteen years later, Streep is as revered and versatile as ever. But what about Bob? 'Everybody's Fine' is exactly the sort of role he doesn't need at this point in his career one so low key and inoffensive that he doesn't seem to know what to do with it. Grade: B-.

Grade: D-.
