Will it all turn out? What do you think? Part of the fun is in watching how, although one's enjoyment of the movie will depend on many factors. Comedy, of course, is a very subjective medium; what some find hilarious, others won't. At the screening I atte

... the comedy is too timid to really make much of a satirical statement.

A long slog of family cliché and idiotic coming-of-age yuks thrown at us with the subtlety of a naked Garry Marshall.

Although there is nothing offensive about the film, there is nothing particularly amusing or enlightening about it, either.

Aside from the first 15 minutes and the last five or so, the film just isn't very funny.

Keeping Up With the Steins isn't a bad film -- it just devolves into the limp sort of schmaltzy conclusion you keep hoping it will avoid.

...you don't have to be Jewish to have fun with Keeping Up With the Steins, but it couldn't hurt.

Charlotte Weekly

A toothless commentary on suburban jealousy, with familial strain mixed in at random.

Squanders a premise that's filled with comic gold by playing it too safe.

a sometimes charming, completely predictable comedy that might be the pilot episode for a TV series you will forget to watch every week.

Hollywood nepotism is served up with the gefilte fish in a stunningly unfunny bar mitzvah comedy.

The life lessons tossed around like seeds aren't especially original, earthshaking or inspiring.

Think of this benign, not-so-kosher cultural comedy as "My Big Fat Jewish Bar Mitzvah."

It's not meant to be uproarious. But even as comfort food, Steins can't keep up.

Offering wan comedy where it should bite and trite homilies in lieu of real emotion, it's a tired, dated and forgettable film about which the best that can be said is it could have been worse.
